Kathryn Gerlock LISW
Hello! My path to Moulton has come by way of having earned a Bachelor of Social Work from Buena Vista University and a Master of Social Work from my hometown college, the University of Nebraska at Omaha. I spent *just a few* years working in community mental health and substance use before stepping into the world of school social work and I couldn’t be happier to serve at Moulton this year.
This is my second year at Moulton, and my second year as a counselor. I used to be a 5th grade teacher in a small district, but decided I wanted to work in a setting with more kids. I have always been passionate about mental health, especially in children, so I got my degree in school counseling and was accepted for a position at Moulton. I love that I get to spend my day working with amazing kids and families, and supporting them in mental health and general wellness.
I am a speech pathologist for DMPS that serves both Moulton and River Woods this year. I have 3 children …. One lives in LA CA, one in Boston and my youngest just moved to Chicago. In my spare time I love to read, go to movies and spend time with friends. I am an active member of Hope Lutheran Church in West DesMoines. This is my 3rd year at Moulton and I love the students and staff and am so happy to be here!!
