Ms. Marisa Ayala

I am originally from Orange County, California, but have lived in Idaho since I was about 8 years old. I grew up primarily in the Boise area. I graduated from Borah High School before attending Boise State University for my first year of my undergraduate education. I continued my education at Idaho State University, where I obtained my Bachelor's of Science in Psychology. A few years later I decided to apply for the Counseling program at Boise State University. I was accepted into the 2015 cohort and later graduated in 2018 with my Master of Arts in Counseling. I interned here at Meridian Academy during my last year in the counseling program where I fell in love with Mastery Education, staff, and students. I am blessed to have the opportunity to be the new school counselor here this year. I focus on providing support, understanding, and validation to all of my students. I’m a mom of a beautiful, almost seven month old little girl, Scarlett Wildflower. She is my world, and inspires me everyday to be the best role model I can for her. Looking forward to a great first year, and many more here at MA!
