Rita Schenkelberg,'17, Counseling

Rita Schenkelberg moved to Bend from Colorado for the master of counseling program at OSU-Cascades. For Rita, the program was life-changing. In our on-site counseling clinic, she found the perfect balance of practicing her counseling skills with faculty only a door away. She is a social justice advocate who spends many hours volunteering in the community. Rita is passionate about working with teenagers and works at Northwest Youth Discovery, a residential treatment program for teen girls founded by an OSU-Cascades counseling alum.
