Jimenez, Lorena


As a former high school student from a predominantly Hispanic and very rural community, I am proud be a school counselor at Vista Grande. I’ve been a school counselor now for 13 years and I love what I do.

Growing up in Eloy, in a low income, but hard working family, I knew I wanted to go to college after I graduated from Santa Cruz, but that’s all I knew. I was motivated by the fact that I wanted to make my immigrant parents proud. After graduation, I had to quickly learn how to navigate the overwhelming world of college and a world where I was truly the minority. It was not easy but most good things don’t come easily. Eventually, I graduated from the U of A with my Bachelor's degree in Psychology and my Master’s degree from NAU in school counseling. My personal struggles, accomplishments, and experiences help me understand you and as a result, help you. 

Outside of school, I am a mother of two strong-minded kids. I enjoy eating at yummy restaurants, watching movies, listening to Maluma and shopping. I don’t mind challenging situations as I feel they only make me a better person. My heroes are my parents for leaving a country they knew and loved to make a better life for me and my siblings. My biggest fear is letting my parents down. One thing they always told me, I can lose everything I gain, like money, house, cars but I can never lose the knowledge I gain through education. Nobody can take that from me.
