Yulissa Balsamo



My name is Yulissa Balsamo, I am the 11th and 12th Grade Counselor. I am an alum of Dixon High School, Class of 2012! I earned my Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Neuroscience at UNC Chapel Hill. I earned my Master's degree in School Counseling at North Carolina A&T State University with a concentration in addictions counseling. Prior to Dixon, I worked for Murphey Traditional Academy and Kearns Academy in Guilford County. 

I am the proud parent of two fur babies, Xena (Pit bull) and Shaggy (Schnoodle). In my free time you'll likely find me outside gardening or indoors crafting. 

It is an honor to have the opportunity to give back to my Dixon family and serve our students. Let's make this year AWESOME!
