Kristin A. Schaefer
Pregnancy Counselor - Fond du Lac
Kristin joined the Bethany Christian Services team in November of 2019 and enjoys her new role as a Pregnancy Counselor. Kristin graduated with her Bachelor’s in Social Work from UW-Whitewater in 2003 and worked for the Bureau of Milwaukee Child Welfare (BMCW) after graduation until 2010. During her time at the BMCW, Kristin was awarded a scholarship to attend Graduate School, and received her Master’s in Social Worker from UW-Milwaukee in 2008. Kristin dabbled in work outside of the Social Work realm for a period of time, working in Pharmaceutical Insurance and Worker’s Compensation from 2010-2017, but helping people lured her back into the Social Work World again in 2017, when she started working with Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin as an Outreach Coordinator through the Care4Kids Program. Kristin moved to the Fox Valley area from Milwaukee in 2018 to start building a life with her significant other, and they recently moved into their new home they built and were also very recently engaged! In their spare time, Kristin and her fiancé enjoy spending time with friends and family, traveling out West to hike and camp, and spending time with their dog and cat.
