My personal philosophy towards learning is that beginnings are scary, endings are sad, but it is everything in between that makes it worthwhile. Children must receive the right program for their learning challenges, but they must also enjoy the experience, feel it is helping and feel comfortable in the environment.

Aspire Academy is my fourth dyslexia organization that I have started. As a founding member of Decoding Dyslexia Iowa and a mother of a dyslexic child, I know the shortage of services for these children.
I helped to create thriving dyslexia learning center in West Des Moines, a non-profit, Literacy Lifeline, to raise scholarships for dyslexia therapy, and now I am expanding services for dyslexia by locating Aspire Academy in Urbandale.
All of our dyslexia tutors receive training directly from the Wilson Certified Partners. No other center in the metro area invests in their staff like we do.
