Ms. McKinnon is currently a school counselor working in the College Office. She attended Boston College where she majored in English and Psychology and also attended the Neighborhood Playhouse School of Theatre. Subsequently, Ms. McKinnon attended Fordham University to obtain her master’s degree in education (Counseling Psychology) and has thoroughly enjoyed working with adolescents in order to ease the challenges they face during this time of their life. She credits a disinterested guidance counselor for inspiring her to pursue this line of work who advised her to apply to one college! Her passion for the post-secondary process has only increased over the years and she has made it a point to visit college campuses all over the United States either through organized tours or on her own. She is a lifelong learner who loves the arts and is a movie aficionado!
Ms. McKinnon is married with one son who works in higher education. Her favorite quote is “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade”! She finds this is inspirational to many students, especially during the grueling college application process. She looks forward to working with your children and is very excited to be a part of the Brooklyn Tech Guidance Team.
