Jane Eliza Chisholm

Hi! My name is Jane Eliza and this is my third year working at Saxe Gotha. I'm the School Counselor for Pre-School, Kindergarten, and 1st Grade and I love, love, love working with these students. I grew up in Savannah, Georgia and moved to South Carolina to attend college. I received my Bachelor of Arts from Furman University where I studied Education with a focus in Child Advocacy. After working for a therapeutic child development center in Greenville, I moved to Columbia to attend grad school at USC. I have an Education Specialist degree in Counselor Education (K-12 School Counseling) and am working on my counseling licensure as an LPC-A. Outside of work, I love spending time with family and friends, baking, and being at the beach.
