Meet Marguerite Berg
Tell us about yourself, what brought you to Coupeville?
My name is Marguerite Berg. I am the Mental Health Professional for the Coupeville Elementary School. I was born and raised in Southern California, lived in Pennsylvania for a couple of years. We moved to Whidbey Island, last Fall, to be closer to my aging father-in-law. I have spent over 25 years in the Behavioral Health field. My experience includes social work, mental health, and management roles - providing behavioral health services to children and adolescents in group homes, residential facilities, a non-public school for at-risk-youth, children and adolescents and their families in foster care, wraparound, and the developmentally disabled population. I have worked with individuals and families who were experiencing homelessness, and adults in the cancer community. I’ve also spent a few years in the field of Education, as a Kindergarten teacher.
Why is supporting children that are served by the Student Support Service Programs important to you?
Children are our future. Together we rise. Coming together to support their needs so that they can strive to be successful, positive benefactors for their community is very important to me. The Student Support Services Program can help provide that support to children in need.
How does support to the Student Support Service Resource Fair help you make a difference in family's lives?
My parents instilled in me - the heart of helping others in need. Being a part of the 2nd annual support services resource fair, allows me the opportunity to be of service to others, give back, help and support those in need. The resource fair helps to directly connect families to service providers in the community that can strengthen and enrich their well-being.
