Hello! My name is Ms. McKissick, formerly Ms. Murry, and I am in my third year as the middle school counselor for Tri-City United Schools in Montgomery and Le Center. My job is to provide comprehensive counseling services to promote academic achievement, personal/social growth, and career development through classroom guidance lessons, small group counseling, and individual counseling. I am also involved with the AVID program as the AVID counselor for our 7th and 8th grade AVID students.
A little bit about me, I graduated with my BS in psychology from the University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire and my MS in professional school counseling from Minnesota State University, Mankato. Before becoming your school counselor, I worked as the college and career counselor at Tri-City United High School. In addition, I have experience as a behavior therapist at the Minnesota Autism Center.
I recently moved back to my hometown of Mankato with my husband, Colin, our dogs, Cleo and Ted, and rabbit, Elton. Hobbies I enjoy include spending time with friends and family, camping, and I LOVE TO TRAVEL! Outside of the US, I have traveled to Mexico, The Bahamas, Italy, France, Austria, Germany, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Croatia.
As a counselor, I have the privilege of working with ALL students, providing guidance in career exploration, as well as supporting any social, emotional, and/or academic needs! If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact me during the school day via email at or by calling (507) 364-3002. Feel free to leave me a message and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
On Blended Learning Days I can be reached via email or Google Voice # (507) 933-0247.
