Years in care: 2
When Katlyn entered care she was placed with her aunt. After about two years in care, she was adopted by her aunt and her husband. Most recently she graduated with an Associates Degree in General Studies from Glen Oaks Community College. While attending community college she was apart of Phi Theta Kappa. Before leaving for her internship here in Seaside, she was a salon assistant for over two years. Her plan when arriving home, is to transfer to Michigan State University and obtain a Master's degree in Social Work. Upon completing her degree, she would like to begin working with youth or as a coordinator of a program. She has also been apart of MYOI (Michigan Youth Opportunity Initiative) for the past 4 years. Being apart of MYOI has really helped Katlyn realize her opportunities for hiring her education. In her free time she really enjoys reading, music and exercise.
