Ashley Kruger- RAIN Elementary Counselor for E Hale Curran
951-696-1405 EXT 2271
I grew up in San Diego and attended UC Irvine for my undergraduate degrees, where I earned Bachelor's degrees in Psychology and Social Behavior and Criminology, Law and Society. I then moved back to sunny San Diego to attend San Diego State University. I earned my Master's in Counseling with a specialization in School Counseling and graduated in 2010. I then went on to serve as an Advocacy Supervisor at Voices for Children- a non profit organization that advocates for improving outcomes for foster youth in San Diego County. In 2012, I began my school counseling career at Valley Center Primary and worked with students Pk-2nd grade. In 2015, I had the opportunity to join Murrieta Valley Unified School District's amazing school counseling team!
I attended a performing arts school from 4th-12th grade and absolutely LOVE musical theater. I also enjoy spending time with friends and family, hiking, going to the movies, going to concerts, meeting new people and learning how to be a better counselor through professional development opportunities :)
