Biographical Sketch

Welcome! My name is Jennifer Dunn and I am Pate Elementary’s School Counselor. This is my fourth year of having the privilege to serve as Pate’s School Counselor. I love working with the wonderful faculty, staff, and families of Pate Elementary and am looking forward to getting to know you and your child!

I grew up in a small town in southeastern Illinois then moved to Chicago to attend college at Loyola University Chicago. I graduated from Loyola with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication. I lived in Chicago for 8 years then decided to move to South Carolina to obtain my Master in Education degree in Counselor Education-School Counseling. I graduated from Clemson in 2011. I am certified by South Carolina for School Counseling in grades K-12. My husband and I live in Hartsville with our daughter, Ella and our three-legged dog, Mitra.
