With a combined background in childcare, public schools, and special education, it became clear to Joel & Tara that many administrators and providers would benefit from hosting training at their own locations, without all the typical stipulations and extra fees. CTO was founded to meet the unique needs of centers and businesses both very small and very large, and of providers both seasoned and new to their fields. Tara holds a B.A. from Bowling Green State University. Joel received his Bachelor's from the University at Buffalo, and his M.S. in Psychology from UoP. They both currently work as providers for individuals with special needs and own Community Grounds, a coffee shop and meeting house in their neighborhood. They have an adventurous 14 year old, energetic todller, and sweet infant. Joel conducts all of CTO's CPR, First Aid, other classes throughout Ohio, and is known to leave participants laughing!
