I have lived in the University Place area my whole life. I married my high school sweetheart and together we raised two incredible young men who have both worked here at MIM doing various jobs.
I began working here at MIM in 2005 as a primary assistant. Witnessing first hand all of the positive outcomes that the children experience in the Montessori environment sparked an interest in me and I decided to return to school. After earning my Montessori teaching certificate and BA I restarted the Toddler program and taught in the toddler classroom for several years before then starting the infant program. I look forward to another year of guiding the infants in the Montessori infant classroom.
