Hi there!  I am a new hire for TK Schools this year, but I am not new to TK.  I graduated from TKHS, then went on to MSU to receive my Bachelors in Social Work, followed by getting my Masters of Social Work at University of Michigan.  Prior to being hired here, I worked up in Muskegon county as a middle school social worker.  I am delighted to be back in the elementary school setting this year, working at The Learning Center, McFall, Lee, and Page. 
My goal as a school social worker is to be a person that children feel safe with and can open up and talk to about any struggles they may be having in school.  I hope to be a small positive impact on the Middleville community, which is one I am so passionate about!
