Meet the Counselors

Middle School Counselor
Kirstin Knutson

BS Psychology with a Communication Studies Minor- St. Catherine University
MS Science in Education- School Counseling- University of Wisconsin- River Falls

Hello! I am a newer face to MSA. This is my first full year at MSA. I began my journey here in April of 2019. From the few short months that I have worked here so far I can say I am in love. The students are so amazing and a joy to work with. I cannot wait to help the middle school students for a whole school year! While I am able to help the students in all of their social/emotional, academic and career goals what I have found that I spend most of my time doing is finding organization strategies that work for each individual student. I also work with students on navigating some peer conflicts that might arise throughout the year.

A Little About Me

I thrive on volunteering and giving back to my community. I enjoy learning about what Minnesota has to offer. Although I recently moved to Wisconsin my heart will always be with Minnesota. In the winter you may find me enjoying the St Paul Winter Carnival festivities or curled up on my couch with my dog Ellie. In the summer and fall you will often find me outside enjoying the wonderful weather and getting out to various walking paths or lakes. 


High School Counselor      
Emily Graveen

BS Psychology,  University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire
MS School Counseling, University of Wisconsin - Stout

Hello! This is my 4th year at MSA and I thoroughly enjoy working with the amazing students, families and staff.  As the high school counselor I work with students in a variety of areas including academic, social/emotional and college/career planning.  Many of MSA's students seek out a 2 or 4 year college after high school and I really enjoy working with students and families as they navigate the college planning process.  I call myself a student advocate and I genuinely enjoy watching students grow and flourish through their high school years.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to me.

A Little About Me

When I am not at MSA you can find me doing a variety of different activities.  Born and raised in Wisconsin, I try to embrace all of the seasons the midwest provides.  I enjoy spending much of my time outside where you can find me boating during the summer days and downhill skiing during the winter months. While I have had my fair share of pinterest fails, I also enjoy experimenting in the kitchen and trying new recipes.  My husband and I also like to travel to new places and are always looking for great ideas of where to go next!
