Guidance & Counseling

Jennifer Matson
Director of College Guidance

I am so excited to say that I am a Silverdale Seahawk! I am the Director of College Guidance, primarily working with students in grades 6-12, but spreading the excitement of college to all grades and families at SBA! 

I am grew up Ohio, but came to Tennessee to attend Lee University 14 years ago and never left! I earned my undergraduate degree in Human Development and Family Studies in 2006 and my Masters Degree in School Counseling in 2008. I have worked in both elementary and secondary schools since graduation as a school counselor. Throughout my career I have taught classroom lessons, led small groups, and met with students and families for personal, social, and academic counseling. I love connecting with students and helping them see their potential. 

In my current role, my goal is to help SBA students and families plan effectively for college by providing information, connections, and preparation by creating awareness of the countless opportunities out there for our students!   God has truly blessed me with the best calling! I get to help students and families make dreams come true by helping them map out their future! 

I am blessed to have met my husband, Jon,  while attending Lee and we have been married 11 years! We have three amazing kiddos, who are all at SBA in the elementary school.  I love to travel, drink coffee, and be outside!
