Nova has proudly been at Madonna for approximately 35 years. She wouldn’t have been here that long if she didn’t love her work. Her journey began as a Speech-Language Pathologist in public schools in Missouri and Florida. When she came to Nebraska and started at Madonna, the traumatic brain injury program was just getting off the ground. That's when she saw a need to connect with the patients’ schools, motivating Nova to earn her Master's in Special Education. When the Therapeutic Learning Center opened, she became the teacher and Education Coordinator in that program. It couldn’t have been a better fit and she loves serving the school-age population. Nova has two daughters and in her spare time, she enjoys her 1 grandchild, soon-to-be three grandchildren. She has two dogs who are great company. She is a mall walker, likes to redo furniture, and sews. She loves to shop and go out to eat.
