Christen Sweet

Family Wellness Worker

Key Roles

I am new to the Family School Wellness Team at Chinook’s Edge. I am shared between two schools, Spruce View and Jessie Duncan. I am at Spruce View four days a week and Jessie Duncan one day a week, usually Thursdays. Typically I work 8:30am-4:30pm, Monday to Friday. The days and times do flex for meetings and trainings as needed.

I believe in the Neufeld approach; and the impact of positive connections. I also believe that the school environment includes more than math and science. I hope to have an impact around educating a whole person as well as helping families and communities grow. I will provide the most inclusive space that is safe and positive for all students.

I have been in the helping profession for over 13 years. My work experience has taken me into the realm of refugees, homelessness, domestic violence, as well as child and family , adult services, addictions and treatment centers. I am excited to see how my skill set can help the families and students reach their full potential! I am also very proud to be part of the Student Services team to help families be successful.
