Kirsten Hetland


My Story

My name is Kirsten Hetland. I started working for Storybook on August 1, 2023. I'm currently a college student at Iowa Central Community College and I'm majoring in Social Work. I'm a part-time toddler teacher and I love working as a toddler teacher because I get to watch them grow, and I learn about every child's personality every day. My favorite hobbies include reading, drawing, watching movies, and hanging out with friends and family.
