"I love my job because I have such a passion to educate others, especially about things in the medical field. I am very personable and outgoing and love to meet new people. Plus, I love to learn and teach others!"
Personally I love to country line dance, go fishing, and spending time with family and friends. I am from Wahoo and I graduated from Bishop Neumann. I played high school softball and basketball. I played a year of college softball as well. My parents are Joe and Deb Spicka—they run a convenience store in Wahoo. I am married to a wonderful husband and have a stepdaughter and a son that we love to do activities with!
