Ms. Garbarino

I am Krysta Garbarino and I am thrilled to be joining Lead Mine as a School Counselor! Originally from Raleigh, I grew up in the Wake County system and can’t wait to join as a staff member serving the community I love so much. I graduated from Denison University in 2016 with a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics. After college, I worked for 3 years at CAPTRUST Financial Advisors and one year as an Instructional Assistant at Underwood Elementary School. While at Underwood, I discovered my love for forming meaningful relationships with students and helping them achieve success. I graduated from Appalachian State University in 2022 with my Master's in Professional School Counseling - energized and ready to help our young learners reach their personal, social, and academic goals. Away from school, I love to read, hike in the mountains, swim at the beach, and spend time with my friends and family.
