I was born and raised in the Washington D.C. area (Fairfax, Virginia) and worked for FCPS from 1992-2011. I moved to Asheville in January 2011 and began working as a school counselor at Erwin HS in January of 2011. As an avid lover of the outdoors, I am excited to be living in this beautiful area of NC! Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband, hiking (yes, that's a moose in the picture.. on a hike in Maine) camping, biking, water sports and gardening.
Parents and students: please feel free to email me or call. Since I am with students during the school day, email is a very helpful way to communicate for non-emergency questions or concerns.
Have a happy, healthy and productive year!
Mrs. Michele Ferry-Winne
