Liz Swanson

Guidance Counselor L-Z

I am excited to become part of the Utah Military Academy family in Lehi! As a former founding parent of a charter school I recognize the need for choice in education. I obtained a Master degree in school counseling from the University of Phoenix and a Bachelor degree in Political Science from Utah State University. I worked as a college and career counselor at Karl G. Maeser Preparatory Academy (KGMPA) serving 10th to 12th graders. While at KGMPA, I headed up their first College Application Week and coordinated with military recruiters and college counselors throughout the year. I served as a scholarship coordinator and worked with seniors in creating scholarship resumes. I spent a year at Oquirrh Hills Middle school as a paid counselor intern with full duties as a school counselor. Prior to obtaining my Master degree in school counseling I worked at a private college in career services helping students find internships and jobs. I love helping students discover career interests and advocating for them individually.
