My name is Miles Nelson and I am excited to be a counselor in Albemarle County Public Schools. I had the wonderful opportunity to work in multiple school districts throughout Virginia such as Manassas Park City Schools, Greene County Schools, and Albemarle County Public Schools.

This will be my seventh year as a School Counselor and I have also worked two years a Community Based Counselor. In the last nine years my jobs have taken me all over Northern and Central Virginia. I can honestly say that I love Charlottesville, even though it pains me a little bit as a Virginia Tech Alumni.

My love for education started at Virginia Tech where I earned my Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology. I then continued my pursuit of higher education at Old Dominion University earning a Master’s of Education in Counseling.

When I am not within the community supporting the learning of all of our students. I love to enjoy time with my wife and daughter, whether we are hiking, swimming, or going to the beach. I also enjoy spending time learning new hobbies such as woodworking.

I look forward to this wonderful opportunity to meet all of you and find out what makes you, you!​
