My name is Julie Hopkins. I am the School Counselor at Choice Plus Academy. I have worked as a School Counselor for over 15 years. I have lived in Smithfield for most of my life. I am a proud graduate of Smithfield Selma High School. I received a Bachelor of Social Work from North Carolina State University and a Master of Education in School Counseling from East Carolina University.
I look foward to serving the students and parents of Choice Plus Academy.
