Mental Health Clinical Trainee

Samantha Funk


Staples Schools


Staples Elementary

Credentials: MSW, LGSW

Office or Location: Pillager and Staples Schools

Hire Year: 2017


Works with clients ages: 6-18 years old.


Working with students is the best part of my job. Brene’ Brown says it best when she explains, "what we are ethically called to do is create a safe space in our schools where all students can walk in and, for that day or hour, take off the crashing weight of their armor, hang it up, and open their heart to truly be seen." I thoroughly love to serve schools and be a part of student’s journeys.


At Northern Pines the people I work with were made for these roles. They have huge hearts and so much knowledge to help others. I learn from their experiences and have had many mentors since working here.


Likes or hobbies: I enjoy coffee, anything outside and peaceful moments throughout the day. Podcasts and audio books are my go-to for personal growth and I often used painting as a creative outlet.
