Ooey Gooey®, Inc.

What’s in a name?


Ooey Gooey® Inc., a company whose very name conjures up images of children’s boundless playful exuberance, aptly expresses the unconventional spontaneity of its creator, Lisa M.

Characteristically, the company traces its genesis to a distinctive defining moment. In 1996, while attending a national conference for the National Association for the Education of Young Children, Lisa, along with the other attendees, soon learned that one of the scheduled presenters had failed to appear. She casually remarked to the woman seated next to her “I could do something like that!” “I dare you to get up on that stage!” replied the woman. Armed with the confidence of fifteen years of preschool teaching experience Lisa skillfully rose to the challenge.

The overwhelmingly positive response to her presentation became the galvanizing force behind Lisa’s decision to more extensively share her commitment to child-centered education.

What began as weekend workshops soon evolved into a full-time endeavor.
