My name is Ann McMurdo and I have been a counselor at Laney College for more than 20 years. I have Bachelor of Science Degrees in Psychology and Political Science from the University of Oregon. (Go Ducks!) I have a MS in Counseling Psychology and a Certificate in Chemical Dependency Studies from CSU Hayward (now East Bay).
Currently, I counsel students and coordinate Laney College’s Student Success and Support Program (SSSP). I also teach COUN 57: Career and Life Planning. I co-chair the Laney College SSSP Committee and serve on the Laney College Learning Assessment Committee and the District Education Committee, as well as several other department and Laney College committees. In the past, I served as co-chair of the Counseling Department and have coordinated the training of new counselors and interns.
I recommend making an appointment with me or another counselor, to discuss your educational goals and develop a student educational plan. Appointments can be made at the Counseling Department in the Administration Building/Tower, Room 301, by calling 510.464.3152 or on-line.
