She graduated from Mt. Lebanon High School in Pittsburgh and completed her undergraduate and graduate work at Westminster College.  Currently, she lives in Grove City with her husband, Kevin, her son, Grayson, and her daughter, McKenzie, along with her mini goldendoodle, Charlie Rose. 

Some of the programs she offers students include: Individual and Group Counseling, “Check In and Check Out”, Girls Group, Study Skills Group, Academic Achievement, Career Exploration, and Classroom Guidance.

If Mrs. Persch is unavailable to meet with you at the moment you stop by her office, fill out a green form on her table and slide it under her door. She will find you and help as soon as possible!

Look for “Mrs. Persch’s Lunch Sign Up” on her bulletin board. You can sign up with three of your friends and bring your lunch down to her office. Make sure to get a pass from her!
