Testimonials

"My staff (at Sioux Trail Elementary) have been sharing about Headway's training sessions. Teachers come back from the trainings excited to try new strategies and they have new understanding regarding mental health issues. This is making a difference in their classrooms and helping them relate to students when they are struggling."

Kjirsten joined Headway in October, 2017 and has a background working in early childhood education.  She is currently enrolled at St. Mary's University and is working toward earning dual licensure for an LPCC and LADC.  She works with children and their families to help connect them with resources to help them overcome transitions and life obstacles.  "I want to build strong connections with families so that they know they have a resource they can trust and rely on," she says.

In her free time, Kjirsten loves to travel with her husband.  They like to explore and try new things together whether it is local or across the ocean.  They also have two cats and a dog that keep them busy and active.
