IRON MOUNTAIN — The Dickinson Iron Great Start Collaborative has recognized special mentor Brit Anderson as winner of the Spring Spotlight Award.

Anderson is a licensed clinical social worker who provides care to children and families, including parents. Anderson also is trauma certified and endorsed for infant mental health.

Anderson works at Northpointe part-time and provides private practice through her office in Norway. She has been instrumental in helping to start the Imagination Factory Children’s Museum and is a key leader on the Imagination Factory Exhibit Committee and Great Start.

In October 2018, Anderson founded FIREFLIES, a non-profit organization at 724 Main St. in Norway. FIREFLIES offers a women’s support group and currently is enrolling clients for prenatal connections, where mothers and babies will be offered a safe space to grow together and reflect on the newness of life within.

FIREFLIES provides Dickinson County and surrounding areas with resources for families and children, assisting in making connections with professional services such as counseling, spiritual, health and wellness.

“We all have a spark inside us. A gift. A glow. Like fireflies. Sometimes we hide, but the world needs us to be seen and allow our beauty to be discovered. See the spark. Connect and glow,” she said.

Great Start leaders appreciate Anderson’s gifts and what she provides to families.
