Hello Mesa Family, I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the best age group of them all, Middle School. These years introduce so many changes and exciting new experiences and I am honored to be able to support 7th graders with last names starting with K-Z. I have worked in post secondary education for the past twenty years and now am ready to continue making a difference with the  Mesa Middle schoolers. I can’t wait to meet each of you as we get back into school.


I completed my Bachelors of Psychology at the University of Maryland, while active duty Air Force, and my Masters in School Counseling at the University of Phoenix. I like to say I’m “almost native” - I have lived in Colorado since 1999. As a child, we moved around a lot since my father was in the military, so who wouldn’t want to claim Colorado as their adoptive home! I feel fortunate to have lived in Castle Rock and have a middle school son and an elementary aged daughter. Outside of work I enjoy the great outdoors with my better half Craig, including paddle boarding with my Schnoodle Norman, running, cycling and enjoying the sights from my Vespa and VW Bug. I am a firm believer in strengthening mind, body, and soul. As your School Counselor I will assist you with academic, personal/social needs as well as your career exploration. My favorite holidays are Birthdays, so you can expect lots of attention from me on your birthday! While I love eating healthy my weakness is candy - so I’ll always have a sweet treat in the counseling office. Looking forward to you stopping by my office, meeting remotely through a video call, or just an old fashioned phone call. You may reach me at 303-387-4765 or ehansen@dcsdk12.org
