I have been working in educational settings for 22 years. I love working with children in the areas of speech and language. They keep me on my toes and entertained! There is not a day that goes by that I don't learn something new; whether my students are teaching me or I am learning a new skill in order to teach and engage them. Technology has never been my forte, but I am constantly learning on that front as well. I appreciate being at Tiger Paw where there is an opportunity to truly engage with students, their families and educators. 

I received my Bachelors and Masters in the area of Communication Sciences and Disorders from Missouri State University. I also have a B.S. in Psychology with a minor in Communications. I grew up in Springfield. My family still lives in the area and we get together throughout the year. Although my husband and I have no children together, we do have a dog that we adopted from the Stone County Humane Society. She brings us much joy. In addition, I have 13 surrogate children who are grown with children of their own. I am proud of each and every one of them!

I grew up in Lake of the Ozarks and still enjoying spending time at the lake with my family.  I moved to the Springfield area for college, met my husband, and we decided Ozark was a good fit for us.  My husband and I have been married for four years and we have a sweet little girl, Maggie.  In my free time, I like eating dessert, going to movies, and chatting with friends.  

I earned my Bachelors and Masters derees in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Missouri State University.  I also minored in Spanish and spent a month studying the language in Ecuador.  Language/communication is fascinating to me.  I love working and playing with preschool kids and seeing life through their eyes.  Working at Tiger Paw allows me the best of those two worlds.
