Health Center Staff

Access Health Louisiana will provide both Primary Care & Behavioral Health services for students at Bonnabel High School this year!  Schedule your sports physical today!

The Bonnabel High School-Based Health Center (SBHC) is one of ten school health center service sites operated by Access Health Louisiana (AHL) in Jefferson Parish.  It is located in the City of Kenner on the eastbank side of the Mississippi River.  Starting in the 2022-23 school year, AHL will provide both the Primary Care and Behavioral Health services for this clinic. The Bonnabel SBHC is easily accessible for all high school students because it is located in the front of campus in a building near the front office.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker Jennifer Clesi provides behavioral health counseling at the clinic.  She sees students for a variety of reasons including:  stress and anger management, anxiety, trauma, depression and bullying. Therapy is offered on an individual or group basis.  Students can visit Ms. Clesi by going to the health center.  Nurse Practitioner Katie Celestin sees students for well & sick visits, immunizations, sports physicals, as well as acute and diagnostic care. Dr. Mehul Sheth also sees students for care.  He is accompanied by University of Queensland residents who rotate into the school-based health center weekly for pediatric rotations.

Parents can also call and request that their child be seen for care.  All students must have a current consent and enrollment form on file at the health center in order to be seen by medical staff.  Consent and enrollment forms are sent home at the beginning of the year; however, parents may sign their child up for services at any time during the school year.

Co-payments are waived for all students and faculty/staff enrolled at our SBHC.  Commercial insurances including Medicaid and Medicare are accepted.  Students who are uninsured can also receive care with a consent and enrollment form on file with the health center.  Any medications prescribed for your child may be filled through the Access Health Louisiana Pharmacy and delivered to your home.  We also work with nearby Walgreens and CVS pharmacies and can have most prescriptions filled at a discounted rate.

Students needing emergency care after hours, please call 9-1-1.
