Cari Barnes


I am excited to begin my eleventh year as a school counselor, my first at Meridian High School. I graduated from MHS in 1997 and have always felt the Warrior Pride! I know many of the students and their families at MHS, having spent the last six years as a counselor at Meridian Middle School and I can't wait to continue working with you all!

My husband and I are the proud parents of a 16 year old son and an 18 year old daughter (who will graduate this year). We also have two crazy dogs, a German Shepherd and a Corgi. Life is never dull! When I'm not at work, I'm reading, spending time with my family, or shopping. I'm a fourth generation Steelers/Pirates/Penguins fan and obsessed with all things Wonder Woman!
