Meet Mrs. Campobasso

Maria Campobasso, Counselor and Advisory

Maria Camposbasso is the new freshman and sophomore guidance counselor at St. John Neuman, and also serves as their academic counselor. This is her first year working at our school and she is very excited to be a part of the Neumann team. She loves exercise and fitness, and one of her hobbies is running. She is very passionate about her job, and loves being able to talk to the students.


How did you get into this job?


Campobasso started college in a nursing program, but she soon realized that this wasn’t her calling and that she hated it. She then switched to exercise science and realized that this wasn’t her calling either. She had always minored in psychology, and she decided to pursue a career in this field. After college she found a job in mental health counseling in a PHP program at the David Lawrence Center. In addition, she did classes for children with mental health issues who couldn’t go to school. She helped them with coping methods to eventually get them back to school.


What brought you to Naples?


Campobasso lived in Chicago her whole life before moving to Naples. She met her husband in Chicago when he was on vacation from Naples. They started dating and soon enough she moved down to Naples to be with him. They got married here and plan on staying here long term. 


Why did you choose this job?


Campobasso says she has always wanted to work in a school. She has especially always wanted to work in counseling, so this is the perfect job for her. She is working toward a master degree in school counseling. She also loves the atmosphere of Neumann.


What does your day look like?


In the morning she will stay in her office answering emails and preparing for the day. Throughout the day she figures out which students she might need to meet with. Once she does this, she invites them to her office and talks to them. Throughout her day she also holds advisory meetings.
