Ms. Nancy Doubrava

8th Grade Counselor

My name is Nancy Doubrava and this is my 11th year as a school counselor. This is my sixth year at Nixa Public Schools.  This is truly the best school district!

I have been married to Brian for 12 years and we have two children, Declan is 7 and Stella is 3 years old. 

They keep us very busy! I love to spend time with my family and friends, run, Crossfit, read, and watch my favorite television shows.

I am excited to work with 8th-grade students at Nixa Junior High.

Every day is exciting and brings new challenges. I love being a counselor and am so thankful to have the opportunity to work with you.

I work with a wonderful team of administrators, Mrs. Costello, teachers, and staff.

Please stop by and see me or schedule an appointment with me, here.

Program Assistant/Attendance

My name is Jenni McCarthy and I am the Nixa Junior High School program assistant to our counselors. My daily duties are assisting our JH counselors, attendance and records management. 

This is my fifth year working for Nixa Public Schools. Prior to working for Nixa Public Schools, I was a mortgage loan processor and teller supervisor in the banking business.

I have been married to my husband Jason for almost 20 years. My greatest joy is being a mother to our son Justin and our daughter Jordyn. 

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, boating, and fishing.

This is the most rewarding job I have ever had, I could not ask for a job that I love more. 

Each day is new and different and I love working with junior high aged students and our amazing, fun and caring teachers and staff. 

I hope your child enjoys the experiences he/she will have at the Nixa Junior High School.

Part-Time Counselor

My name is Kari Kleinsmith and this is my 33rd year in education. I retired with Nixa Public Schools in May and am so excited to return to the JH two days a week.

I have been married to Stephen for 28 years and we have been blessed with two sons. Our oldest Elijah lives and works in Kansas City and Jacob is attending OTC.

I am excited to help in the counseling office at the junior high. I believe counseling is all about relationships: expressing genuine care and concern, offering comfort and support, and hope for healing.
