I immediately started at Central Methodist College in July of 1997 as the Head Women's Athletic Trainer and Professor. I was there from 1997 to 2005 when my mother's health issues called me back to Sedalia and I was lucky enough to be hired on with Bothwell Regional Health Center and contracted out to Warsaw high school. I have been a contract Athletic Trainer to the Warsaw school district since 2005 and have loved every second of it. Due to an unforeseen but awesome situation the contract was not continued with the high school but lucky enough the Administration and School Board were able to work it out to hire me on full time as Physical Science teacher and Athletic Trainer. I am so happy to continue my career with this school district. I have enjoyed every second of my time as an Athletic Trainer at Warsaw School District and am excited to start this new path. I have two children Taylor who is in the process of getting her Master's in Athletic Training (like mother like daughter) and my son Ty-Kristofer who is in the Marines. I enjoy all outdoor activities like playing softball, camping, floating and especially working in my garden. Again I want to thank the school district for allowing me to continue my career at a place that I consider my second home, almost my first because I am and will be here for so long. I love this community. I have gained so many friends in my time here, not only staff but also students and parents. " Lisha has already been a huge part of the Wildcat family for a long time, and we are very excited to have you in this new role! Welcome to the Wildcat Family! #wildcattraditionprideexcellence
