Bio and Contact Info

8th Grade School Counselor, Mrs. Sarah Geiger

My name is Sarah Geiger.  I am happy to introduce myself as the 8th grade school counselor at Pickerington’s Lakeview Junior High School.

I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology as well as Communication at The University of Toledo. I attended The Ohio State University (Go Bucks!) to complete my Master’s in School Counseling in 2012 and I am currently working on obtaining my Ph.D. in their Counselor Education program.  

I enjoy my role in encouraging all the children to strive for their personal best in academic, social/emotional and career development.  I am thrilled to be working with the students, teachers, administrators, and parents whom I so highly regard.

My spare time is spent with my husband, John, and our two wonderful children.  Our son, Lucas, is a 7th grader and our daughter, Alaina, is in 3rd grade.  

Please do not hesitate to contact me for assistance.  Wishing everyone a great school year!
