About Our

Humble Start


Jeremy & Sarah

A powerful TEAM

In the Beginning...

Just the two of us

It all started one evening soon after we were married. Jeremy was looking to move up the teacher's payscale and Sarah was feeling a call to return to school. Both suddenly realized they had a similar draw to the helping profession of counseling! The entered grad school, one at Doane and one at UNL, competed to see who'd get the better grades... and of course, Sarah won, as always... but only by 1%, but Jeremy's not bitter about it.

And the rest, they say is history. Read below to see how things unfolded. (newest events at the top)
