Director of School Counseling and Pupil Services
Leana Sykes has been a proud member of our Lindenwold school community since 2003. She received her Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from the University of Scranton in 1999, her Master's degree in School Counseling from Loyola University in Maryland in 2001, and her second Master's Degree in Couple and Family Therapy from Drexel University in 2013. She began her Lindenwold career at Lindenwold Middle School as a School Counselor in 2003. The comforting, yet challenging, energy of Lindenwold Middle School was the perfect fit for Leana, and she quickly knew that this was where she wanted to spend her career as an educator. When presented with the challenge of becoming the Director of Pupil Personnel Services before she turned 30, Leana took it on and never turned back. Since 2007, she has had the great honor of providing comprehensive counseling services to all of our Lindenwold students and has been honored to see the greatness of our Lindenwold Alumni. Leana spends her days working alongside the best counseling team a director could ever ask for, and her evenings working in her private therapy practice alongside her therapy dog, Winston.
