Your Family Specialist
Degrees and Certifications:
Howdy Broncos! My name is Kelly Romero, and I am the Family Specialist here at Northern Hills. I am originally from San Antonio and graduated from MacArthur High School. I spent some time away, and am so happy to be back!
I have bachelor’s degrees from both Texas A&M and New Mexico State Universities, as well as a Master of Social Work from Western New Mexico University. This is my third year at Northern Hills. Previous to this, I worked for a Health and Human Services office in New Mexico, and have almost 10 years of experience in helping families obtain access to needed resources.
I am excited to work more with all of the families here at Northern Hills! I myself am married with a young daughter, and love spending time with my family. Please feel free to contact me at any time if your family needs assistance during your student’s time here!
