Luckily Becky has had her hair cut by someone other than her Mom for many years and she did eventually grow into her pouty lips. (She likes to think she has better fashion sense, too.) Born and raised in St. Louis, she attended Ritenour High School until a move as a senior to Parkway West. Her nursing education was through Missouri Baptist Hospital School of Nursing. She had a wonderful women’s health career at St. Lukes Hospital, working midnight shift for 17 years. She then took a job for a large Ob-Gyn practice at SJMMC. This was where she learned to love caring for infertility patients.
Raised by two caring, motivated parents, she developed a love for service, an abiding faith, and a fighting spirit for the underdog. After thirty years of marriage, she lovingly saw her husband, Ken, head home in January 2004. His battle with metastatic renal cell cancer taught her that love and support is the most important gift you can give. That emotional journey only strengthened her determination to make PARINTS the best – she knows her Kenny continues to guide and support her.
Anyone who knows Becky, knows that she is enormously proud of her three beautiful daughters. She enjoys spending time with them and their wonderful families.
With over 20 years of nursing experience, Becky leapt into the idea of PARINTS as a way to bring peace to those trying to fulfill a dream. The personal joy has been immense and she feels extremely blessed to be a part of so many phenomenal families.
