My own children (Anthony, Dylan and Paige) brought me to the Children’s Center in 1998 when my middle child was in pre-school. My oldest was in our school-age program and quite a few years later my youngest child also attended preschool here. She is now a high school student! I am a Washington native and I enjoy going to the beach, walking and hiking, gatherings with family and friends, skiing, watching movies, golfing and watching my daughter play volleyball.
I am truly blessed to be a part of this community where, as the Program Supervisor, I work and play with amazing families, children and staff, providing support and guidance to ensure the best experience Prior to my role as a mentor teacher I taught in the 4 year old class for 14 years! I hold a certificate in Early Childhood Education and will graduate with an Associate’s Degree this year.
I believe that relationships are central to all we do, both personally and professionally. When we build trust with children we create a space for them where they are safe to explore and grow. Children need guidance from loving, educated adults who care passionately about them and can help them realize their greatest potential.
