Kate Flynn is in her second year of graduate school at The University of Pennsylvania earning an M.S.Ed. in School and Mental Health counseling. She is completing her clinical internship hours at Rosemont College and The Center for Grieving Children. She chose to intern at The Center because she believes that grief is a natural part of the human experience and that the group peer support model is effective in helping those who have experienced loss. When she graduates this May, Kate hopes to continue working with grieving children and families.
