Meet Our Counselor

RachaelHello Sand Creek Families!

My name is Rachael Heflin, and I am the new School Counselor at Sand Creek Elementary!

I grew up in Issaquah, Washington and received my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Washington. Shortly after graduating, I moved to the Denver area where I explored career paths in different corporate management positions.

Ultimately, I decided to go back to what I was passionate about and obtain a Master’s Degree in School Counseling from the University of Denver. I had the pleasure of completing my school counseling internship at an elementary school in Denver, but I am excited to begin my journey at Sand Creek Elementary!

I align my practice with ASCA’s recommendations, focusing on the domains of academic, career and social/emotional development. I enjoy working at the elementary level to help students learn proactive coping strategies and lifelong wellness practices.

I look forward to getting to know Sand Creek students personally and collaborating with our staff and parent community to ensure the success of each child at Sand Creek Elementary!
