After receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in French from Pittsburg State University, I went on to earn a Master of Science in Management from Friends University. My professional career includes time spent marketing and fundraising for a non-profit retirement community. My time there was followed up as the President & CEO of a local non-profit hospice. I am currently the Department Chair for Allied Health Studies at a career college. Our Allied Health programs include Medical Assisting, Health Care Administration and Health & Fitness Trainer. I teach Physical Education at a local Christian school for K-12. I also own a personal training company called "Return to You: Created for Movement and Health" that focuses on bringing mommies back to the woman they knew, and may be mourning the loss of, before they had children and their bodies and lives changed forever. I am proud to be one of those women! Three kids and a busy life still creates a passion in me to help women feel like they are strong, vibrant and worthy!
