Thanks for working here this week: Karissa Morris, PPC, CCMG Kid Clinic

Campbell County Health is proud of its employees, and we want the CCH family and the Campbell County community to know about the good work that they do for this organization.

Introducing Karissa Morris, a Provisional Professional Counselor (PPC) with the Campbell County Medical Group Kid Clinic in Gillette, Wyoming. Karissa has a master’s degree in counseling and has been with CCH for nearly two years, but has been in healthcare for 15 years. The Kid Clinic is a collaborative effort between Campbell County Health, Campbell County Medical Group and Campbell County School District to provide primary medical care, behavioral health and substance abuse counseling services. The medical clinic serves children ages 2 weeks to 21 years old; and counseling services for children 4 years old to 21 years old.

Karissa was inspired to work in health care because she has always been passionate about wellness and self-care.

“I started my career as a Health Educator/Wellness coach,” she says. “I learned through personal experience and working with my clients that I wanted to work with clients on a more meaningful level which inspired me to continue my education in counseling.”

Karissa says that she has many healthcare heroes. “From influencers like Bessel Van der Kolk and Brené Brown, to the supervisors I've had and the clinicians I work with. Each of them has helped me find my path in this field and continue to help me grow daily,” she says.

Karissa calls herself a life-long learner. “When I am not at work I am still reading, listening and watching things that can help me grow as a person and clinician. I also love to spend time with my family, camping or doing anything outdoors and traveling,” she says.

We asked Karissa what she likes most about working for CCH, and what excellence every day means to her. Check out her response:

“I really enjoy seeing progress in the children that I work with. The Kid Clinic has a great team of people. We can rely on each other, respect each other and work well together. The team always puts forth effort to put our clients first and give them the care that they deserve.

Excellence every day is very simple to me: Show up and work hard. When you fall, show up again using what you learned to do better.”

Thank you, Karissa, for showing up for your young clients every day. We are proud to have you on our team.
