Jr/Sr High School Counselor

Hello! My Name Is

Holly Nemec
7-12 School Counselor at Brookwood High School

This is my second year at Brookwood High School, however it is my 15th year as a school counselor.  I grew up in Hillsboro and went on to pursue a BS in Psychology at UW-Platteville.  Upon graduating I married my high school sweetheart, Brian.  We ended up in southern WI, where I worked as a secretary for Big Foot High School in Walworth, WI, while I earned my MS in Counselor Education with an emphasis in School Counseling at UW-Whitewater.  I did a one year long-term School Counseling sub at Walworth Elementary/Middle School before returning to this area in 2007.  I worked as the School Counselor at Wonewoc-Center Schools for 12 years (2007-2019).

I have been married to Brian for 24 years.  We have a 21-year-old son, Justin, who is attending UW-LaCrosse for Elementary Education.  We also have a 18-year-old daughter, Abigail, who is attending Chippewa Valley Technical College in Eau Claire for Cosmetology.  In my free time I enjoy shopping, watching TV, reading, camping, kayaking, watching volleyball, and spending time with my family.

I plan to work with 7th and 8th graders in the classrooms for guidance on a variety of topics such as anger and conflict resolution, bullying, study skills, time and stress management, coping skills, self-esteem, and use Xello (formerly Career Cruising) for career exploration. Along with guidance, I will be working with students in grades 9-12 on Academic & Career Planning, a state requirement for all students in high school.  I will be helping students with college and career exploration, employability/soft skills, as well as scheduling and testing requirements. I will also have individual and parent conferences throughout the school year to talk about student progress. 

My contact information is: (608) 337-4401 or hnemec@now.k12.wi.us. I'm looking forward to another great school year! I am so excited to be a part of the Falcon Family!
