Tresta Barner


I graduated from ETSU with a B.S. in Psychology with a minor of Communicative Disorders in 2014. I then went on to achieve my Master of Education: School Counseling degree in December of 2017. I worked as a counselor outside of the school system for a year before beginning my career at Mt. Carmel Elementary. 

I was born and raised in Hawkins County, where I attended school from Kindergarten through 12th grade. I graduated from Volunteer High School in 2010. I have a passion for children, learning, and helping others, so I followed my dreams and became a school counselor. Watching students learn and grow, and being a part of their academic, social/emotional, and career development is a true joy!

Randy and I have one beautiful daughter, Trinity, who is the light of our lives! In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, being outdoors, reading, and cooking!
