- What you enjoy most about the program: Easy... the people... our residents, staff, and faculty are all heavily invested in the program and each other. I love the family atmosphere and collective drive to be innovative in what we do.

- Favorite things to do in Springfield:​ Enjoy Washington Park with my family, catch a movie at the Route 66 Drive Inn, pork chop & a corn dog at the State Fair (with a deep fried snickers to top it off!)
