Kyrie Adams, School Counselor
Hello! My name is Kyrie Adams and I'm the School Counselor. Originally from New York, I taught in the greater D.C. area for 7 years and then moved to Colorado to complete my graduate program. In August 2010, I joined the JA staff. I have a BS in Secondary Education from Liberty University and a MA in School and Community Counseling from Denver Seminary. I also hold credentials as a Special Services Provider (SSP) in schools, National Certified Counselor (NCC), and Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) specializing in adolescent, adult, and family therapy. I am looking forward to another year working with students, parents and teachers to make the year successful and fun for your student.  Please email me at kadams@jajags.com  with any questions or concerns that you may have. I am here for the needs of students and parents.

Lisa Oths, School Social Worker
​ Lisa photoHello! My name is Lisa Oths and I am the School Social Worker. I am ready to help students and families with all things related to emotional and behavioral health. I joined the JA team in 2016 and truly love working with our students who know me mostly as “Ms. O.” I was born and raised in Kansas then relocated to New York, New Jersey, Tennessee, and finally Colorado where I plan to remain and “grow roots.” I practiced clinical social work in each of these states. I attended Wichita State University’s graduate program for my MA in Social Work. I am licensed as a social worker in the state of Colorado in addition to carrying a Special Services License for school social work. I am currently completing my clinical clock hours to obtain my LCSW and look forward to a wonderful school year at JA.  Please email me, loths@jajags.com for anything I can help you with.
