I have worked as an occupational therapist for the district since 2006. I graduated from the University of Missouri in 2002 with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Occupational Therapy. After graduation, I worked at Boone Hospital Center in a variety of settings including acute care, orthopedics, neonatal intensive care, and outpatient pediatrics. I also served as an occupational therapist in the Kansas City school district, before returning to Jefferson City in 2006. I provide services at Moreau Heights Elementary. I truly treasure my job, which is helping kids learn play, academic, and life skills needed for independence, both inside and outside the classroom. I 'm happily married and blessed with three amazing daughters. In my free time, I like to run, travel, cook, do yoga and spend time with family and friends.
