Kevin Kirsch

Master of Social Work

Variety is the spice of life so you'll find me on Bigfoot health getting my big feet (size 12) wet in all sorts of ways. Community volunteering, swimming, bicycling, meditation, yoga, and cannonballs off the diving board.
I bring a background in social work, and bring a "whole self" mindset to you. While I've competed in a half dozen marathons and triathlons, I don't think I'll ever skydive. But just like with your own health, allow yourself to be surprised on what you are capable of accomplishing.
I love all animals and one day hope to meet the legendary Bigfoot. Until then, I'll let my inner Bigfoot be my guide. Because to go big, ya gotta start small.

Hello, Rhea here! Iโ€™ve been taking a rest in Duluth this weekend, which seems absolutely WILD to rest during these unpredictable times.The pandemic has thrown a lot of my plans into a loop, and from the beginning it felt like a constant fight to be busy, productive, and proactive at all of the tasks I need to do. However, the weekend surrounded by beautiful nature and clean air reminded me that itโ€™s good to stop, breathe it all in, and take a break. I hope that all of yโ€™all take some time today to go outside, enjoy nature, and most importantly REST!

Go BIG!
