Audrey Eddins

My name is Audrey Eddins and I am so excited for my first year at Kimbrough Middle School as the intervention counselor, and 6th grade counselor. I received my Bachelor of Social Work, and Master of Social Work from Baylor University (Sic Em’). I also hold the title of Licensed Master Social Worker, certified by the Texas State Board of Social Work Examiners. During my time in the counseling department of a juvenile detention center, and a psychiatric residential treatment facility, my passion grew for early intervention. I love all things mental health and working with youth, so I am pursuing my clinical license so that I can further serve my students. I am so excited to serve this role at Kimbrough and getting to know my students and their families!
