I started Aspire Academy to reach those who struggle with reading and spelling.

I have filled this organization with caring, compassionate people. I love to teach students the skills they need to succeed. My personal drive stems from a lifetime of seeing highly-talented individuals who struggle with reading and spelling being denied their full potential.

Aspire Academy is my third dyslexic organization:

  • I currently own and operate Aspire Academy in Urbandale, Iowa.
  • I am a founding member of Decoding Dyslexia Iowa
  • I am a founding partner of True Potential Education, the first dyslexia learning center in the Des Moines metro area.

I know how to build caring organizations that deliver quality services.  These organizations are thriving and helping students in the metro succeed.
