Ms. (Couperus) Strening is one of the College & Career Counselors here at e3 and works with scholars with the last names of M-Z. She relocated to San Diego from Chicago 3 years ago, where she worked as a Counselor at a Social Justice High School. She graduated from Illinois State University with a Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice & Psychology. Afterwards, she moved across the world to Asia where she taught English for a couple years in both South Korea and Taiwan. After teaching, she traveled South East Asia and then she came back the U.S. to pursue her Masters of Science in Counseling, with a specialization in School Counseling along with a Pupil Personnel Services credential from Roosevelt University in Chicago.
Her focus at e3 is to provide a comprehensive counseling program that affords many of our students the opportunity to pursue post-secondary education. In addition, she is passionate about students reaching their full potential and supporting each individual student in their journey through high school. In her free time, Ms. Strening enjoys spending time with her husband exploring all that San Diego has to offer or curling up with a good book.
