PMS School Counseling Department
Hello! My name is Ms. Lin and I am a School Counselor at PMS! This is my second year at Plainwell and I am so excited to join the students and staff for another great school year! Before coming to PMS I worked as a High School Counselor, Life Skills Coach, and Youth Shelter Care Worker. I love the balance of social/emotional, academic, and postsecondary support that I get to provide students in my unique role. I chose to be a School Counselor because I believe in the power of education for building a brighter future and the importance of unconditional supportive adults to help make that happen. I enjoy working with young people and helping them to develop the skills and strategies they need to grow into successful adults. I've spent most of my life in the Kalamazoo, MI area but I have also lived in Massachusetts and Ohio. I have an adorable fur baby named Freddy whose 3 years old. In my free time I enjoy spending time with family/friends, watching movies, reading, attending performance art, going on dog walks, and traveling when I have the opportunity. I look forward to another great year of working with all of you here in the Plainwell community.
