Guidance

Beth Campbell - bcampbell@watervillek12.org - I am the Kindergarten and First Grade school counselor at GJMS. I have been a school counselor for 16 years working with students from grades K-12. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from UMF, a Masters in School Counseling from USM, and am just about to complete a second masters degree in Clinical Social Work from UNE. I love learning about how to be the best therapist I can be! In my free time, I enjoy being a mom, spending time with my family and friends, and being by the water.

Lisa Kimball - lkimball@watervillek12.org - I am the second and third grade social worker. My education spans UMO/UMF/Westfield/USM/West Chester/UNE. I have both regular education and SPED degrees and my LCSW in clinical social work. I am also a registered Maine Guide. The bulk of my career has been in adventure/experiential/ alternative education, children’s therapy and now school social work.

Kelly McCarthy - kmccarthy@watervillek12.org - I am the Lighthouse Day Treatment Social Worker here at GJMS. I graduated from the University of Maine at Augusta in 2016, where I earned my bachelor’s degree in Mental Health and Human Services. I recently graduated from the University of Maine at Orono with a master’s in Social Work. I believe that building relationships, helping students discover their strengths, and teaching strategies to navigate through life is an important role I have while working with students here at GJMS. In my spare time I enjoy crafting, playing with my two children, and finding new spots to explore here in Maine.
