Talya has been a steady presence at Calo since 2016. She has had the pleasure of holding the position of Team Lead since 2017. Talya grew up in Illinois, just outside of St. Louis. She attended parochial schools throughout the primary grades and into high school and then went on to earn an Associate’s Degree at Southwestern Illinois College. Talya’s parents had by that time moved to the Lake of the Ozarks, which was her incentive to move to be closer to them. Talya has a passion for working with young people and helping them work through their struggles while building strong, healthy relationships with them. When she is not at Calo, Talya loves spending time playing and hiking with her dog!
