Meyuna Shepherd, K-2 Counselor
Dana Hembling, 3-5 Counselor
Hello students and parents! My name is Meyuna Shepherd, a Professional School and Mental Health Counselor. I am so excited to be working here at Chesney Elementary School! I was born and raised in the heart of Atlanta, Georgia. In 2010, I received my Bachelor's Degree in Mass Communications and Marketing at The University of West Georgia. 2015, my Master's Degree in Clinical Mental Health at Argosy University and my School Counseling Add-on at Mercer University in the Spring of 2021. My passion is to help students develop into their true whole self! My mission is to make sure that all students have an equitable education while coming alongside them to break barriers, succeed academically, grow developmentally, all while dancing and having fun!
I enjoy hanging with my friends and family, eating pizza, traveling, and reading a good fiction book.
Hello! My name is Dana Hembling, your 3rd-5th grade School Counselor here at Chesney Elementary School. I am beyond grateful to work for this school and to serve the students and their families here at Chesney. My goal is to meet each student where they are at academically, socially, and emotionally.
Originally from New Jersey, I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work from Monmouth University in May, 2018. I continued my education at Monmouth University and obtained my Master’s Degree in School Counseling in May, 2020.
Aside from School Counseling and my unwavering passion to help others, my other passion is music. I love to sing and will sing at any place that will give me the opportunity to do so!
