Hello! My name is Jennifer Houk and I am one of the co-owners of The Kid SpOt Center. I grew up in Summerville and graduated high school from Green County. I have one brother, Brandon and my parents are Marty Glanzer and Denise Glanzer. From a very young age, I knew that I wanted to work with kids. I babysat some very special families as an 8th grader through the rest of my high school career. Those families will always have a piece of my heart!! When choosing my career path, I knew that as a SLP I could work with kids and celebrate the most precious milestones with families, such as their first words, first bites of food, learning sign language, and so much more. It is truly one of the most rewarding careers! I received my Bachelor degree from Western Kentucky University in 2004 and obtained my Master's degree in Communication Disorders in 2006. When I look back on life experiences, college was a turning point in my life. I had the best group of friends I could have ever ask for, along with the best professors in the Speech program that I still love like family. After graduating with my Master's degree, I married my high school sweetheart, John. I have been married to John for 13 years; however, we have been together over 20 years (he was my high school sweetheart. John is employed at US Army Corp of Engineers as the Maintenance Supervisor at Green River Lake.
We have 3 children, Skyler (12), Taylor (9), and Xander (2). Sky attends Taylor County Middle School and is in 7th grade. She loves volleyball, softball, and is quite the perfectionist in school. Sky has a very big heart and is one of the most compassionate kids I have ever met. Taylor attends Taylor County Intermediate school and is in 4th grade. She loves gymnastics, art, swimming, and is a social butterfly. Taylor keeps us on our toes and always knows how to make us smile! Xander is our sweet surprise later in life. He completed our family and God knew exactly what he was doing when he blessed us with this little boy. He loves to play outside, all farm animals, and his family! I am truly blessed with the best family and support system I could ever ask for. We live a very fast paced life supporting our kids and we wouldn't change one minute of it!
Upon my college graduation, I worked at Taylor County school district where I met Brandy. Little did I know that she had the same passion and love to help kids, and we shared the same dream to open a clinic. Through much prayer, planning, and family support our dream became a reality!
