Norwood has been Kiersten's home since she was 6 years old. She went to St. Catherine's for eight years, graduated from Norwood High, and then received her Bachelor's degree in Developmental Psychology with a concentration in Child and Adolescent Development from Lesley University. She worked with the Sexual Abuse Treatment Team at Children's Hospital; The May Center Neuro-rehabilitation School for children with traumatic brain injuries and the Geriatric Psychiatric Unit at Norwood Hospital. She loves to write and believes all forms of expression - art, writing, music, running around a playground - are important. Above all, family is more important to her than anything else in the world, especially her son Joseph. She is excited and very honored to be a part of Norwood Patch.
