My name is Melissa Amadio, and I am the School Counselor at Lakeview Elementary. I am originally from Omaha, NE. and spent most of my adult life living in various parts of the U.S. and Canada. In 2013 my family moved to Middle TN and now call Mt. Juliet, home. I received a Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice from Peru State College in Peru, NE. and went on to work with at-risk youth in the Austin, TX area. From these experiences, I decided to pursue a degree that would allow me to help children become more successful students, work with them to help them effectively deal with a variety of problems, and inspire them to do their personal best in their lives. I went on to receive a Masters Degree in School Counseling from Creighton University in Omaha, NE. My role as a School Counselor is truly rewarding, and I'm excited to work with all of the students and families at Lakeview. Please visit the counseling overview section of the website to learn more about my role in the school and how I can assist you and your child.
