WE ARE PLEASED TO WELCOME MORGAN GOODMAN TO GOODRICH!

My name is Morgan Goodman (Ms. Goodman), and I am the new Mental Health Consultant for the Goodrich School District. I will be working district wide with students K-12!


I graduated from Mount Morris High School in 2012. I have an Associates of Social Science in Criminal Justice from Mott Community College and a Bachelor of Science in Applied Psychology with a minor in Substance Prevention and Treatment from the University of Michigan-Flint. I am currently pursuing a Master’s of Science in Psychology with a concentration in Applied Behavior Analysis from Purdue University Global.


I have been working in Behavioral Health since 2016. My areas of focus have been working with individuals with co-occurring disorders and dual diagnosis with severe problem behavior in youth, adolescents, and adults and continue to work in the role.


Additionally, I have experience working in experiential education, with students K- 12 and corporate groups on professional development skills focusing on communication, trust, integrity, problem solving and conflict resolution through team building activities. Before coming to the Goodrich School District, I worked as a Prevention Specialist for Genesee County, where I focused on prevention resources and methods for youth, adolescents, and adults.


In my free time, I enjoy traveling and being outdoors. I love spending time with my family! Being an aunt to my nieces and nephew is my favorite role! I breed and show Alaskan Malamutes, which my family has been doing for almost 40 years!


Fun Facts: I danced for 15 years, I love playing softball and continue to play, I’m a twin, and I’m left handed!
