A Note from Ms. Campbell:
Hello! My name is Allie Campbell and I am thrilled to be starting my fifth school year at VPE! Before beginning my roles as a Child Guidance Specialist and District Mental Health Specialist, I served as a Group Leader in the VPE After-School Program while completing my Bachelor's and Master's degrees at the University of Kentucky. This year I will be primarily working with first, third and fifth grades, however, I am available to assist with any grade levels. I have loved getting to know your students and am looking forward to another wonderful year here at Veterans Park Elementary!
A Note from Ms. Moon:
Hello! My name is Kayla Moon and this is my first school year serving as the Family Community Liaison/Child Guidance Specialist on our amazing counseling team. After receiving my Bachelors degree in Public Relations from Valparaiso University, I worked in various Public Relations positions but decided to make a career change to School Counseling and most recently graduated with my Masters degree from Indiana Wesleyan University. This school year, I am primarily working with Kindergarten, 2nd and 4th grades. However, I am available to assist with all grade levels, as needed. I adore working with the kids at VPE and know we will continue to have an awesome school year!
A Note from Mr. Barth:
Hello! My name is Paul Barth and this is my first year here at VPE as a District Mental Health Specialist! Prior to VPE, I was an outpatient therapist and clinical manager at Marshall Pediatric Therapy in Georgetown, KY. There, I worked with children and adolescents with various mental health and behavioral struggles. I was also an in-home clinician with New Vista where I worked with at-risk youth and their families in Lexington, KY and surrounding counties. I completed both my undergraduate and graduate degrees in Family Studies from the University of Kentucky. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), I have experience mostly working with children, adolescents, and their families. I’ve been married for 17 wonderful years and I have three amazing children ages 7, 9, and 11. This year at VPE, I work predominantly with K, 2nd, and 4th graders, but I assist with all students as needed. For parents, I also am available for consultation regarding your child and any emotional, behavior, mental health, or parenting concerns/needs you may have. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me!
