Melissa Goodman - Counselor
I am honored to be the newest member of the counseling team at Venture Academy. I was raised in Oakdale, CA where I reside with my two children and two dogs. I recently received my Masters in Counselor Education and am working toward my license as a Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC). In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, wakeboarding and sitting down with a good book. My passion is working with kids to ensure their success both academically and socially.
Jeremy Sinclair - Counselor
I have been working as a School Counselor at Venture since 2010. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and have worked both in private and non-profit settings. Sports and travel are two passions of mine. I have spent a year serving in Uganda, Africa just before joining the Venture family and I currently help coach both boys and girls volleyball. I love living in Stockton with my wife (who also coaches volleyball at Venture) and two daughters.
Chelsea Weilburg - Counselor
I have been with Venture Academy since 2014 and absolutely love it. I’ve lived in San Joaquin County my entire life and care deeply for the community. I am also an adjunct psychology instructor at San Joaquin Delta College where I teach both online and evening courses. I am very passionate about animals and enjoy traveling, cooking/baking, and hiking.
Kim Scott - Counselor
I have been a school counselor for 9 years and this is my 3rd year working as a counselor at Venture Academy. I grew up in Modesto and attended the University of the Pacific as a student athlete. I was very fortunate to earn an Athletic Scholarship and play soccer as a UOP tiger. I recently had my second son and am now a proud mom of two boys. My husband, two boys, bull-dog and I live in Lodi and love being there. We enjoy the outdoors and love to hike, swim, camp, ski, etc.
