Tina Michalski is a graduate of the State University of New York at Buffalo’s School of Social Work, obtaining her Master of Social Work (MSW) degree. Tina joined the staff at Glow Natural Health Center in November, 2009; relocating to the Seattle area with her husband Kirt, along with their cat and parrot, to be near their daughter, Lindsey, son-in-law Joel, and their first grandchild, Eli.
