If someone would have told me I would end up becoming a safety professional, I wouldn’t have believed them. With a BS degree in Kinesiology/Health Education and Promotion, concentrating in Community Health; I was all about improving the health of others. I focused on the holistic approach of health: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social; with a spotlight on childhood obesity. During my last semester at Southeastern Louisiana University, I interned at the Safety Council of the Louisiana Capital Area; and somehow morphed into a super safety chick!
I began researching safety and all the particulars, but found myself pursuing the area that made my heart sing the most beautiful song. I can still hear the sweet little voices and know that child safety is my home. You know what they say; “Home is where the heart is.” My inspiration comes from the children I see and hear each day. There is nothing more innocent than a child and their little lives are beautiful and precious. I allow my passion for the well-being of children to shine through my dedication and warmth for educating the public about preventing injuries. I believe safety education for children and caregivers is essential and will continue to display that devotion through each parent, caregiver and child I come in contact with.
Earning the opportunity to be the Executive Director of Lexlee’s Kids is an honor and dream come true. From the grandparent who says, “my how things have changed”; to the parent who thanks you with tears in their eyes; to the teen who is road ready; to the little one who can buckle up and boogie; to the wee one who smiles in their properly installed car seat…I love, love, love it all!
When I am not officially working, I can be found spending time with family, friends and loved ones; cleaning house and beautifying my yard. HGTV inspires me to be absolutely fabulous on the home front!
