Hi, My name is Rachelle Holbrook. I attended Snow as a Freshman just out of High School and loved it! Though some things were difficult, it was a time of self-discovery and helped shape me into the person I have become. Many faculty and staff contributed to not only my academic learning, but also my personal journey. I have always been grateful for their willingness to give of themselves for the benefit of others in what I attribute to be “The Spirit of Snow”. Their example made me want to share this Snow Spirit with others, so after working in both Garfield County and North Sanpete School Districts, when a position opened in the Counseling Center, I jumped at the chance to return to Snow. I hope to share “The Spirit of Snow” that was given to me with all current Snow College students!
If you come into the Counseling and Wellness Center, chances are I will be one of the first faces you see. I hope all who come to our office feel accepted and comfortable. Whether you need to meet with a counselor or you just want to come and decompress in the Zen Den, my goal is that each individual will always feel welcome.
In addition to being the office manager for the Counseling Center, I am also the Prevention Specialist for Snow College. You might see me presenting in your classes or with the Wellness Advocates on Campus as we host different activities. Feel free to come say hello and join us in our activities. I love opportunities to interact with students and get to know them better. I look forward to meeting YOU!
No matter how challenging life seems, always believe in the Power of Yet.
