Katey Gerken – RE Coordinator

Katey Gerken – RE Coordinator
RE Coordinator

I am originally from La Crosse, Wisconsin.  I am currently finishing up my third year of grad school at USD in the Masters of Social Work program. . I am also working to finish my internship at Children’s Home Society,  interning with the Family therapist, doing individual, family, and group therapy.

UU principles are very similar to our social work code of ethics and very much how I choose to live my life; I always say to my friends and family that social work is not a career but a way of living.

I have my BS in Psychology from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and Masters in Human Services from Capella University. I have worked with children and young adults since I moved to South Dakota in 2010. My work experience includes Volunteers of America, Department of Labor and Regulation as an Employment specialist, and two and a half years at Child Protection Services.
