The Dream Team

Misty Williams

I graduated from Tulsa Community College in 2020 to be an occupational therapy assistant, I always knew I wanted to help people, I just never knew in what way until halfway through the OTA program when I took the child development class and realized I wanted to be the advocate for these children with learning differences that I did not have growing up and being able to relate to them on that aspect helps both of us.  My favorite thing about working at Dyslexia Center of Tulsa is watching the kids progress in every session and them getting excited when it finally comes together for them, they always laugh at me because I get super excited for them.  I have 2 teenage daughters and a 4-legged son. On my free time, I enjoy watching my daughters play soccer and doing DIY craft projects.

Deaf Education Teacher

I have been working with the Dyslexia Center for six years and have found great joy in my purpose in life. I enjoy my students and the staff. It is very satisfying to watch the success of the students. Other than DCT, I find pleasure in reading, leading Gentle Yoga classes, doing aerial yoga, staying active with friends and family, and painting.

Kathryn Mitchell
Teacher

I’ve been a teacher at Dyslexia Center of Tulsa for four years. I am a former classroom reading teacher with over 25 years of experience in the field. I am very passionate about working with students who are struggling with reading and spelling. There is no better feeling than to watch a student’s confidence level grow when they receive the intervention and therapy they need. I enjoy reading, spending time with family and friends, and being outdoors.

Tori Aaenson
Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant

I love dogs and my favorite hobbies are cooking, dirt bike riding, and watching action movies. I graduated from Tulsa Community College in 2019 to be an Occupational Therapy Assistant and have always had the drive to help people. I can’t think of a better way than teaching my kids at the Dyslexia Center of Tulsa. I like to think that I’m drawn to these kids because I struggled in school myself. My favorite part about working with these kids is witnessing that “Ah-ha!” moment when things just click for them and everything they are working toward becomes easier.

Clinic Coordinator

I love working at DCT because I know I am helping to make a difference in the lives of children with an organization that cares. My background in business and psychology brings a helpful and unique perspective to DCT.

I’m an avid reader; I have a book with me at all times. Aside from reading, I enjoy spending time outside as much as possible or watching UFC with my husband.

I enjoy working for DCT because I feel like I have a calling to work with children and it amazes me to visibly see the impact the hard work and therapy is making each week! I am a certified and board licensed occupational therapy assistant which is my dream career. I also have an associate degree in child development backed by 14 years of experience in the field. As a busy mom of 4, you can find me spending time with my family, especially on weekends, other wise you can find me sipping coffee and strolling the isles at my local target!
