My Journey to WestCare Tennessee

By Kaylee Lindgren, DFC Program Coordinator

I am originally from Dixon, California. I moved to Tennessee with my parents in 2011, graduated high school from Family Christian Academy of East Tennessee, and went on to pursue a Special Education teaching degree starting at Walters State Community College in Morristown. In my collegiate journey, I changed my career trajectory to the field of social work, ultimately receiving a bachelor’s degree of social work as well as an associate’s with honors from Middle Tennessee State University in May of 2020. I have previously been involved with different outreach organizations and other nonprofits such as Camp Bethel Ministries in Wise, VA; Camp Hope in Church Hill, TN; and Kingswood Home for Children in Bean Station, TN. I have a burning desire to work alongside the community and like-minded individuals with the goal and intentions of helping local communities in the beautiful state of Tennessee. I am honored to have the opportunity to work with the WestCare team and to make a difference in the surrounding counties by promoting and educating our community members about living in a drug-free community!
