Our Special Services Team
Founding Mental Health Partner
Hello PA Village!
My name is Kirsten Beemer and I am excited to be one of Prospect Academy’s Mental Health Partners. I received my Masters of Arts in Counseling in 2001 and am currently enrolled in a School Counseling Certificate program. Past jobs have included: Counselor, Behavioral Technician, Dance Studio Owner/ Teacher, Kindergarten Paraprofessional and Special Education Paraprofessional. Having lived in Michigan and Washington, I am thrilled to be living in sunny Colorado with my husband, our two kids and our cockapoo. I am so excited to bring my expertise and compassion to Prospect and to be a support to our village.
I will never forget my 5th grade teacher because he gave all of his students nicknames and we played charades daily. I was also thrilled to be chosen as the lead role in the class play and I won the SMATH competition. Don’t ask me how to play it though, because I do not remember. :)
School Social Worker
Greetings all the way from Houston, Texas! I recently moved to Colorado to be the new social worker here at Prospect Academy. I attended THE Prairie View A&M Univerisity where I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Work and a minor in Military Science. I also attended the University of Texas at Arlington, where I received my Masters of Science in Social Work (Mental Health).
Fun fact, I was an officer in the United States Army. I proudly served in the Medical Service Corp from the years of 2006 - 2021. I have 13 years of experience in a variety of social work settings to include: Adult Protective Services, My Health My Resources of Tarrant County (MHMR) mental health services, The Harris Center of Mental Health and IDD, hospice and I have been a middle school counselor for 6 years.
Outside of work, I love to celebrate my culture of being a Bahamian American, being a small business entreprenuer, traveling and sleeping.
