Originally from Fort Smith, she is very excited to be in central Arkansas and working in early intervention and pediatrics. She loves helping the kids at KULA meet their maximum potential. The most exciting for her is to see the progress they make and seeing how it greatly impacts their daily life in such a positive way. In Sax’s free time, she enjoys working out at Arkansas Fitness and Athletics, watching the St. Louis Cardinals and spending time with her family and friends.
