Karma Forbes

As a Counselor at Renton Technical College, I provide career counseling and academic advising to students. In my role as Special Needs Counselor, I help students with disabilities access services to help them succeed in our programs. In addition to the services I provide directly to RTC Technical Program students, I work with our Assessment Counselor to serve Basic Studies students with special needs whose goals include GED completion and/or attending technical programs and Business Technology.

Renton Technical College excels in offering hands-on learning, which many students find as an ideal match to their learning style. In addition to over 20 years experience in educational counseling, I am trained as a Learning Disabilities Specialist. I especially enjoy helping students find effective strategies to address their learning challenges by identify and utilizing their strengths to their fullest.

My current work schedule is 9:00 am to 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday. My office is located in Building J, Room 218D, in the Student Success Center (next to the Testing Center).

Please call me at (425) 235-2352 x5705 or email me at if you would like further information or to schedule an appointment.
