My husband Rick and I moved to Ozark Rd in 2010.  I am a naturalist and outdoor educator. We homeschool our two boys, ages 6 and 10 and spend lots of time exploring.  We enjoy gardening, hiking with our dog, camping and water sports. Spring and Fall are my favorite seasons and the natural beauty of our trees and flowers in Stuart Heights brings me such joy. I would love to see more gatherings, people getting to know their neighbors and kids playing together in our neighborhood. I look forward to helping our enthusiastic new board get their bearings and creating new traditions while honoring our rich history in Stuart Heights.

I am so excited to be working with this amazing neighborhood association. I live on Ozark Rd. with my husband, Daxton, and my two girls, Ellery, age 4, and Thatcher, age 2. I am a speech therapist working with geriatrics in the home health setting. When I’m not working or taking care of kids, I love to spend time in the outdoors especially on whitewater, hiking, beekeeping, gardening, and knitting.

I will be serving as treasurer for my first year on the board, and I am excited about the energy the current board brings to the neighborhood.  My wife, Abby, and I have lived at 2800 Haywood Ave for the last 10 years. We have 2 girls, ages 11 and 5. I work at CADAS as a substance abuse counselor and my wife works at Erlanger in the legal department. We have seen the neighborhood growing  in the last decade and we care deeply about this neighborhood as we have plans to stay here for some time. I have fond memories of my neighborhood growing up and wish the same for my children. I am looking forward to serving on the new board and making Stuart Heights a memorable experience for all.
