Ms. Tamara Owens
I am the School Counselor for JNES/KMS/Star of the North.
I was born and raised in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan. I have lived in Kotzebue since the fall of 2014, and until I accepted the school counselor position at the NWABSD, I worked at the Maniilaq Health Center as an Itinerant Behavioral Therapist. I am excited about serving this region by serving its children and their families. My education includes a B.A. in Psychology from Lee University, a Master of Arts in Divinity, and a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, from The Pentecostal Theological Seminary, in Cleveland, Tn.
I love the outdoors, driving on the beach (in any vehicle), hunting for mammoth tusks and bones, art, making people laugh, and seeing the humor in all areas of life.
