Irene Yu is an Asian American Guidance Counselor and Education Advocate. She possesses her California Pupil Personnel Services Credential (PPS) in School Counseling and completed her Masters in Education (Ed.M.) and Masters in Arts (M.A.) in Psychological Counseling at Columbia University in New York. She has over 15 years of teaching experience in both comprehensive public and independent private schools across the United States and abroad.
One of her proudest accomplishments was building the counseling program from the ground up for a new private high school. She established systems and protocols and was proud to have made her mark to pave the pathway for her students.
The counselor student ratio is at an all time high in California, and meeting students one-on-one is becoming increasingly more difficult. In Summer 2017 Irene decided to create educational videos to reach a greater audience and equalize the playing field so that all students and families can access resources needed to be successful in high school and beyond.
