I received my Bachelor's degree from Kennesaw State University in Public and Social Services.  I went on to receive my Master's degree from West Georgia University in Guidance Counseling.  I am a National Certified Counselor and a member of Georgia School Counselor's Association.  I am certified as a school counselor for grades Pre-k through 12th.  


Before arriving at Belwood, I worked as the Family Advocate and School Counselor for nine years at W.L. Swain Elementary. I have worked in various areas such as domestic violence, home health care and troubled youth.  I have twenty four years experience in my field and continue to learn new things every day. 


My name is Shari Turley and I am happy to be the school counselor at belwood.  I am married and have two wonderful children ages 14 and 16.  Our family enjoys camping, hiking, boating and just about anything outdoors.  We also love our three dogs, four cats and our famous rabbit named Elliot.
