Anyone choosing to work in the area of education must have a love for children, learning, and a need for helping others.  Divine Redeemer has been blessed to have such a person in Mrs. Laina Uttech- School Counselor.  Laina received her undergraduate degree in Human Development and Family Studies from the University of Wisconsin- Madison.  Following, she earned her Masters degree in counseling (school emphasis) from UW- Whitewater.  Laina's career path started in Janesville Middle School for two years, and then she moved to Illinois where she worked for Carl Sandburg Middle School.  Laina and her husband, Mike, had their two girls in Illinois before moving back to Wisconsin to be with family!

In 2011, Laina began a part-time position at University School of Milwaukee to be their middle school counselor.  It wasn't until October of 2016 that Laina was approached by Divine Redeemer to be its school counselor and she accepted!  Laina is always busy with children, whether DR students or her own children- Aliza, Elsa, and Ben.  Mrs. Uttech is a great advocate for the school stating she first fell in love with DR as a parent!  Laina is also a handler for "Dora"- the comfort dog.  Students and staff love when Dora is in the building!
