Mrs. Ongena

Hello! My name is Mrs. Ongena and I am the Social Worker and Counselor at Ralya Elementary School. My husband and I are expecting our first baby this upcoming Fall and we couldn't be more excited. I am beyond thrilled to start my 4th year in such a wonderful community and school!

Background: I received my undergraduate degree from Central Michigan University in 2009 where I also was a member of the CMU Varsity Volleyball team for four years. In 2012, I graduated from Wayne State University with a Masters Degree in Social Work. For the past 8 years I have worked as a School Social Worker in 3 different elementary schools/communities. I moved back to the area in 2017 to be closer to my now husband, family and friends. 

Passions: My passion is my family, anything sports related and helping people!! My husband and I have a golden retriever who just turned 1 and we couldn't be more in love. She is going to be the best big sister!

My mission in life is to make sure people feel supported, important and loved.  

Go VIKINGS!
