Lindsay Dal Porto

I graduated from California State University, Sacramento with a degree in Public Health. After graduating, I found myself working as an AmeriCorps member supporting at risk families make changes necessary to be successful. While in this position, I decided to change directions with my career and went on to pursue a Masters of Arts in Counseling with a school counseling emphasis.

Since graduating in 2011, I have worked as a substance abuse and anger management counselor for at-risk youth, an instructional assistant in a special day class with children on the Autism spectrum, and an Instructional Leader at a community school in El Dorado County teaching health and psychology electives.

I started with San Joaquin County Office of Education at the beginning of the 15/16 school year as the counselor at BFA and the Career Technical Education department. I am passionate about what I do and find fulfillment in seeing others achieve their own goals and aspirations. I am truly honored when I am able to be a part of that journey.
