After a number of years practicing as a social worker with juvenile delinquents, Dawn Kelly elected to change fields in order to become more proactive. Having an interest in working in the school setting and appreciating the diagnostic aspect of her role as a social worker, she chose the field of school psychology. She received her Master of Arts in School Psychology from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. However, some of the most rewarding courses she took were ones at Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota in the Counseling Psychology program.

For the past several years, she has practiced school psychology at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. Most recently, she spent her days at Tartan High School in Oakdale, Minn. She is actively involved in the pre-referral process as well as the evaluation process. She truly enjoys working in schools and with teachers, and often finds herself in a mentor-type role.
