While employed as a speech therapist in K-12 schools, in a small township outside of Dayton, Ohio, Dr. Jaxson-Jager realized that most students were well mannered and kind, while other students could not play fair, wait their turns, were jealous of others and tried to hurt them, stole from others, and liked to fight. She feels that her interest in the counseling profession, grew from these observations.
