Ms. Speaks - 7th Grade Counselor

My name is Krista Speaks and I will be the 7th grade counselor this year.  I grew up in Oregon, went to high school and college in Kansas, taught in California and then moved to Colorado.  My favorite thing to do is laugh and spend time with friends and family.  I have one baby and her name is Lulu.  She’s sweet, furry, loves walks and loves to snuggle.  I challenge you to show me a cuter dog! I can’t wait to get to know all of you and help you with absolutely anything. My goal is that you are happy and feel success as you adventure through your 7th grade year.  You are going to LOVE our KCMS Family.

My name is Janell Ourganian and I will be the 8th Grade Counselor this year. I am a Colorado Native and grew up in the Littleton area.

Ms. Loonie - Social Worker & 6th-8th GT/SPED Counselor

Hi! I'm Carly Loonie and I am the Social Worker and Counselor for Gifted & Talented and Special Education students for the 2018-2019 school year. I moved here in 2017 from New York, where I was a School Social Worker since 2009. I've had an exciting first year in Colorado filled with concerts at Red Rocks, my wedding in Grand Lake, breathtaking hikes with my dogs Roxy and Louie, experimenting with camping and becoming part of the fantastic family at Ken Caryl Middle School. I look forward to continuing to support the amazing students at KCMS and hope to continue to share my passion for wellness with our community.

Ms. Fiess - GT Counselor

Hello!  I am Lisa Fiess and I joined the Jefferson County Gifted and Talented Department five years ago, in a newly created position as a GT Social Emotional Learning Counselor, with the goal of supporting the affective needs of our gifted learners.  I currently split my time between three GT Center programs:  Ken Caryl MS, Kyffin ES, Kendrick Lakes ES, where I proactively counsel students and am a resource for staff and parents. I am excited to be a part of the KCMS counseling team and look forward to supporting our gifted students through their middle school years. When I am not at one of my fhree schools, you can find me hiking in the mountains or on the sidelines at a sporting event for two kids of my own.
