Whitney S., Director of Operations

I am a Longview native. I received both a Child Development and Teacher Education degree from LeTourneau University. Professionally, I have worked in a variety of fields – universities, counseling practices, performance centers, child-development centers, and the Marine Corps Community Service’s marketing department. My husband and I have been married for 11 years and have been back in Longview for the past 6 of those, after living on both the East and West Coast. We have 3 children, a golden retriever, and a cat. I enjoy coffee, running, and going on adventures with my family.

I was born and raised in Tampa, FL and have lived the last 17 years in Dallas, GA. I graduated with my Bachelor's in Art Education from Georgia State University in 2012. I have worked as a veterinary technician, a caretaker, and a teacher. My passion is in education. I taught Pre-K in a traditional setting for five years and have recently been teaching students age 4-13 online, while raising my two children at home. In my free time, I enjoy sharing time with my family, reading and have recently taken up an interest in woodworking. I am excited and honored to be a part of the support staff here.

I'm originally from Kosse, TX. I was a stay at home mom for most of my kids younger years. I met the love of my life and ventured up here to the Longview area 4 years ago. We have 6 children between the both of us. In 2018 I received my Pharmacy Technician license and have worked in the pharmaceutical field for past 2 years. I love and enjoy helping others and always have.


I also enjoy spending time with my family, having cook outs, and enjoying each others company. Both my boys are involved in sports, absolutely love to watch them play when I can.

I graduated from Longview High School in 2014 and moved to Huntsville, TX to study music at Sam Houston State University. I recently have returned to my hometown and hope to transfer to a nearby school in the coming years to further pursue a career in music. I have one sweet fur baby named Stevie that was rescued almost three years ago. My hobbies include singing, binging Netflix shows, and eating dark chocolate. I have extensive experience in an office setting as support staff and as a Longview native I am excited to be at Kranz Psychological Services to provide services for the betterment of my community.

I am a Kansas gal who spent the last 4 years in Nebraska. I just became an empty nester after raising my two awesome sons. I moved to Kilgore to be close to family and can't wait to see what new adventures Texas has in store.

am a transplant to Texas from the great state of Kansas, Rock Chalk Jayhawks!  We were transferred to Texas in 2005 and quickly found that we love living in beautiful East Texas.  I have been married for 38 years and was blessed with two sons.  I have a beautiful daughter-in-law as well as a stepdaughter and son-in-law.  I have a total of 6 precious grandkids that call me Nana and bring me such joy!

Working in the business and accounting fields have been my main career focus, but I have also touched many various fields of work from a mechanics helper, waitress, tractor driving/cattle working farm girl, cosmetologist, florist and working side by side with my husband in the construction and concrete business.  I love the fact that I am a female version of being a “Jack of all trades” because that is my father’s name and he, along with my mother Joyce, were hard workers and made hard workers of all four of their kids.
