Certified Staff - Counselor
Hi, my name is Tony Heaton, I was born and raised in Deer Lodge, MT. After high school, I went into the Marine Corps for 4 years before receiving my Bachelors in Sociology from the University of Montana. I spent the next 12 years working for the Department of Corrections in a couple of different states. I worked as a Drill Instructor, probation parole officer and superintendent of a prison boot camp. Even though I was successful working in corrections I wanted a career working with a younger population. I went back to school and received my Masters in Educational Counseling from Montana State University-Northern in 2016. I have spent the last three years as a school counselor in Poplar, Montana and have enjoyed my new career immensely.
