What's the Story?

Andrea Harp

Director of Marketing and Communications

Hi, I'm Andrea (aka your go-to story gal). I love telling stories, writing stories, and sharing stories, so if you are looking for one you've come to the right place!

Care to Learn changes thousands of lives daily, and I'd love to help connect you with interviews, images, or footage that can help convey the true impact of what we do (and in a way that's honoring to those that we serve).

We want to help share how little things are making a big impact, and you can help us. Give me a call at 417-862-7771 (or for more immediate requests call or text me at 417-894-5071).
