Ahoy Pirates!
This is Mrs. Costa (previously known as Ms. Cannon) and I am one of the school counselors at Lake Wylie. I am originally from the "High Country" in Boone, NC and am excited for my second year at Lake Wylie! I graduated from Appalachian State University in 2020 with my Masters in School Counseling. After graduation I moved to the Charlotte area with my husband Matt and my furbabies Brooks and Liam. While at school I love doing everything that I can to help each student reach their highest potential. Individual counseling, group counseling, and classroom lessons are my JAM. Here's to another great year at Lake Wylie!!
