View Ms. Davison's website - https://kdavisonssw.weebly.com/
Hello I'm Kristen Davison. I moved to the area in 2012 from Chicago, IL where I attended Illinois State University and the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. I'm married and have boy/girl twins who keep me extra busy! I enjoy traveling, the beach & pool, Pilates, concerts, reading, and being outside with my family. I've been a school social worker since 2008. I provide holistic support to students through consult with teachers and a lot of parent contact providing community resources, monitoring student attendance and social emotional assistance. Check out my website for more information about school social work, available resources and more!
Chris Dudek, Guidance Counselor
Hello! My name is Christine “Chris” Dudek. I have been a school counselor for 12 years, 8 of which have been here at Reedy Creek Elementary. I love my job because I get to work with children and no day is the same. My time is mostly focused on: seeing students individually, in group settings or in classroom guidance. I have 2 sons who are 4 & 7 years old. When I’m not chasing them around I love to read, walk my dog, be outdoors, play games and spend time with my family.
Julia Haywood, Psychologist
Hi I'm Julia Haywood, the school psychologist. I've worked at Reedy Creek since 2014 and have been in Wake County since 2011. I support students, teachers, and parents with understanding, preventing, and responding to problems with learning, development, behavior, and social-emotional functioning. I've lived in North Carolina my entire live and attended the University of North Carolina for my graduate and undergraduate degrees (Go Tar Heels!). I'm married and have two amazing daughters. I enjoy sports, movies, reading, and playing outside.
Jackie Kacich, School Nurse
Hi, my name is Jackie and I am the nurse at Reedy Creek Elementary. Before school nursing, I worked in an urgent care setting. My background is in public health and I have always wanted to work with kids. I really enjoy working with the students and staff. I learn something new from them every day. School nursing is a perfect fit!
I moved to Raleigh in 2014 from Urbana, Illinois and LOVE it. I might live in Duke, Tarheel, and State territory - I still bleed orange and blue for my Illini. When I'm not at school, my husband and I are chasing around two little boys. You will probably find us at a Carolina Hurricanes or Durham Bulls game, definitely a sports family. We are avid Netflix waters. I love to travel and need to get to Australia and Hawaii to complete my bucket list.
