School Counselors

Counselor - Ms. Jenna Jordheim

Ms. Jenna Jordheim (A-L)

Hello! I’m Jenna Jordheim and this is my 12th year as a school counselor in the California public school system (my 7th year with Capistrano Unified School District).  I have my Master of Science in School Psychology with PPS credential as well as a PPS credential in school counseling.   

When I’m not working, I play on two soccer teams and travel as often as I can.  I absolutely love my job and feel honored that I get to work with high school students to support healthy progress through struggles. 

Counselor - Mrs. Kasey Kessler

Mrs. Kasey Kessler (M-Z)

Hi I'm Kasey! This is my 4th year as a full time school counselor. I grew up on Catalina Island and then moved to San Luis Obispo to attend Cal Poly and earn my BA in Sociology. I earned my Master of Arts in Counseling and PPS credential at Chapman University. In my free time I like running and being outdoors.

I have an open-door policy and love when I get a chance to meet with students and hear about their journey.I feel completely blessed to be able to get to work with the amazing colleagues, students and families that also call San Juan Hills High School Home.
