Hi there! My name is Sammy O’Neill.  I am the counselor for E-Lh students here at Vista Peak.  I was born and raised in Aurora and grew up in Aurora Public Schools so I am thrilled to be back here working with students and families from my own community. 

I went to the University of Northern Colorado for both my Bachelor’s and my Master’s degree.  GO BEARS! Prior to working at Vista Peak I was a College Career Counselor, so I love talking to people about their future and helping others figure out what they love to do.  When I’m not at work, I spend time with my husband and our adorable—and friendly—cat! 

I try to always take advantage of the mountains--whether that’s hiking, snowboarding, or just spending time in nature.  I am also a big fan of live music and go to as many concerts as I can.  I also love to travel, cook, bake, read, cheer on the Broncos and spend time with friends and family. 

This year I will be the Senior Class Sponsor for student council and will also be the Assistant Cheer Coach.  I’m looking forward to being part of the Vista Peak Family!
