   Thank you for visiting my web page.  By doing so, I will venture to say, I am serving one of your children in my speech program.  I currently serve the children of Eastridge Elementary, Red Oak Intermediate, Little Hawks and pre-school age children from Eastridge and Wooden attendance zones.

   My family and I have lived in this area since 1999.  We live in Waxahachie and love the history and friendliness of the folks in Ellis County.  My husband, Larry and I have been married for 30 years.  We met and married while attending Texas Tech University.  We still enjoy following Red Raider football but since the graduation of our oldest child from Baylor, our blood now runs Green and Gold as well! Sic 'em Bears!  We have two beautiful daughters who have kept us busy over the years with their studies and many activities.  Micah, is now graduated from Baylor and works and lives in Washington D.C.  Little sister Meredith is a student at University of Texas, Arlington, and is majoring in History.

   In our free time, Larry and I love to travel and we love attending high school and college football games.  Our bucket list item is to see all 50 states and by my calculations, we are half-way there!
