My name is Meredith Nickens and I am the school counselor at Coastal Elementary. I was born and raised in a small town in Tennessee. I married my husband in 2018 and moved to North Carolina. We have two dogs, Ruby and Rowdy, who are absolutely spoiled. In my free time I enjoy reading, camping, hiking, and traveling to the mountains whenever possible.
I received my B.A. in Psychology from Emory and Henry College in 2015. I graduated in 2019 with my MEd in School Counseling from Salem College. This will be my third year as a counselor and I am very excited to see what this year has in store. I thoroughly enjoy teaching classroom guidance lessons and conducting small group sessions. It is very important that my students know they always have someone to talk with and they are not alone.
