Mrs. Bergquist

My name is Melissa Bergquist and I am the guidance counselor at Osakis. I look forward to the 2020-21 school year and working with all students to help them be successful while in school and also help them as they look ahead to their futures!

I have been a counselor for 26 years. During that time, I have worked in K-12 settings as a counselor and also spent a few years working at Concordia College in Moorhead as the Director of Student Programming. I have been a head girls basketball coach for many years, as well as coaching volleyball and softball.

My favorite thing to do is spend time outdoors with my family. My husband Randy is the Superintendent in Osakis. We have 3 children - Carson (18), Kira (16), and Miah (9).

Undergraduate Degree: Minnesota State University, Moorhead

Graduate Degrees: Masters of Social Work from the U of M, Twin Cities and Masters of School Counseling from St. Cloud State University.
