I am from Hallsville, Missouri, which is just outside of Columbia. I ventured to the larger town of Columbia, Missouri where I attended Columbia College completing both my Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in Criminal Justice Administration. I am currently working on my Ph.D. in Human Services and Social Work with a specialty in Military Cultures and Families.
I have been with the Alzheimer's Association for almost five years. I am on the Board of Directors for the Missouri Patriot Paws and we provide service dogs to veterans with PTSD/TBI. I have two children, ages 25 and 17. I also have three dogs (right now)! Please let me know if you have any questions.
