Hi! I’m Salina Bisson and I am so excited to be part of the team here at Horizons! I always knew working with children was my passion, but I never knew it would lead me to a great place like this. I started my schooling with teaching in mind and thought I wanted to be a special education teacher. Two years into school I started looking at different career options and decided the field of social work was for me. With this decision I changed my major and started on my new path.
In May of 2012 I began my final internship here at Horizons and I can remember thinking on the first day, “This is exactly what I want to do.” I could see that everyone at this clinic had the same passion as I did and wanted to help these kids overcome any obstacles. I learned so much during my internship and formed so many great relationships that I didn’t want to leave. I graduated from Ferris State University with my Bachelors in Social Work on December 2012, and was able to start working at my dream job here at Horizons later that month. I now have my master’s degree in social work from Western Michigan University. I am so excited to see all the amazing things to come here at the clinic, and I can’t imagine any other place I’d want to be!
See you soon!
