My name is Karen Cavanaugh, and I am the counselor for Ford Elementary. I am happy to be here, and it is going to be my 12th year at Ford as counselor. I was counselor at Frost for 10 years before coming to Ford. I also spent 4 years in Plano ISD as an elementary counselor. I graduated from Tarleton State University with my bachelors and masters degree in counseling. In addition to being a counselor, I am also a wife and a mother of three. My twin boys, Trey and Matt are attending college at Texas State and Texas A&M. My daughter, Lauren is starting her sophomore year at Oklahoma University. We love sports, and I am a Big Longhorn fan. My husband attended Texas A&M, and with my daughter attending OU, it it always a fun time watching the rivalries every year.
