My name is Jessica Corbin and I am the Social Worker at Columbine Hills Elementary. I have the opportunity to work with students from Kindergarten to 5th grade, including students in the ASD program. I am passionate about providing support to students so they can continue to learn, thrive and reach their full potential. Over the past decade, I have spent my career providing clinical mental health services to both adults and adolescents. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, gardening, baking and riding the Peloton.  I am honored to be a member of the Columbine Hills Community!
