Desiree Fryer, MSW, CSW received her Masters of Social Work at the University of Utah.  Prior to this she graduated from Southern Utah University (SUU) with a bachelor's degree in psychology. She has worked with the CERTS Group since 2004.  She started as a mentor and then moved to shift lead at Moonridge Academy and Kolob Canyon.  She also worked at Mountain Springs Preparatory Academy as a shift lead, staff director, and director of operations.

During her time at Mountain Springs, Desiree got married and started her family. With the birth of her second child, Desiree moved into an admissions role, facilitating paperwork for all incoming students to all the CERTS Group programs (Kolob Canyon, Moonridge Academy, Mountain Springs, and La Europa Academy). After 8 years of work in admissions, Desiree decided to go back to school to fulfill her dream of becoming a therapist for the CERTS Group programs. All three of her children are in school currently, so it made sense to join them.  She is excited to  support students and their families. 

Desiree loves spending time with her family, traveling, the outdoors, and anything that sparkles.
