Life Outside the University

Family! Jason, my husband of 20 years, is a Springfield native. We have two children, Nathan (16) and Olivia (12), who keep us involved in their studies, swimming, cross country and track meets. We enjoy travelling together for adventure and relaxation and to keep in touch with friends in our previous home states. We are fortunate to have extended family right here in Missouri. Finally, we have our pet family…Lotte, Lucy, Charlie, July and Rocky (dog, cats and turtles).
