Counselor


Welcome to Counseling

Hi, My name is Megan Coaplen and this is my seventh year as the School Counselor at Buncombe County Middle College.  I believe that all students can be successful and I am here to support the individual needs of each student.  I am available to help students navigate social/emotional skills, personal issues, career planning,and college planning. I am passionate about supporting students as they face life's challenges and triumph's. 

I am a native of Asheville, NC and love calling our beautiful mountains home.  I have two beautiful sons and spend my time outside of school chasing after them and getting outdoors.  I graduated from University of North Carolina Greensboro in 2003 with a degree in Human Development and Family Studies.  In 2012 I graduated from Western Carolina University with a Masters of Education in School Counseling.  

Please reach out to me and say hello and let me know how I can best support you and your student.
