    My parents attended Ozark Christian College in the early '80s and brought me to Villa Heights as a newborn. My dad supply-preached a bit in the area, but Villa Heights was our "home church" in Joplin. After my sister was born here, we moved to Italy as missionaries. My brother was born there, and I finished my first 5 years of school there. We returned to Kansas, where my parents were originally from. My dad preached at a few churches, I went to college in Wichita, my brother and sister attended OCC, and we all reunited here in Joplin. I finished college at Missouri Southern, taught English in China and Ecuador, worked at a nursing home, Community Support Services, Walmart, a bank, and the Joplin Schools. Then my dad introduced me to a wonderful man who brought me back to Villa Heights and has been a great husband. After working at a chiropractic clinic and a day care, God opened the doors to my dream job. I LOVE hanging out with your kids and teaching them about Jesus.

If there's ever anything I can do for you, don't hesitate to let me know:
