I was born and raised in Liberal Ks and started working in Mental Health in 1996 working with individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to assist them in daily life skills. In 1998 I began working in the hospital in the Geropsychiatric in-patient unit. I love being around people and chose this career because I have always had a passion for helping others. My goal is to provide valuable care and to make a lasting positive impact for people. In 2001 my family and I moved to Arkansas. I stayed working in healthcare but eventually came back to the mental health field as it is truly my passion. I am a mother of three and enjoy time with my kids and camping.
