A Little About Dusty’s Role

Dusty joined Headway in August 2017 and has worked in the human services field since 2007. Prior to joining Headway, she worked for Lifespan of Minnesota working with children and adolescents aged 5-18.  She has worked with a wide range of ages from 18 months old to adulthood, however.  She specializes in Cognitive Behavior Therapy, mindfulness/yoga, and play therapy, and has a background in children’s mental health case management, which has helped her learn the various ins and outs of the community supports available to the children and families she works with. “I really enjoy working with kids who are having a really tough time,” she says. “Watching a kid grow and experience success is one of the best feelings and the reason that I love what I do.”

Dusty loves yoga, sports, outdoors, and being on the go! A big part of her life outside of work is spent on the field or court cheering for her kids. She is huge on family and family time spent together.
