I grew up in the University Place/Fircrest area. After graduation, I went to work in the retail industry for many years. I have four lovely adult children and five beautiful grandchildren.
My life-long passion for working with children found me opening a child care in my own home. In 2005, I started working at MIM where I became a Teacher Assistant. After attending the Montessori Institute of the Pacific NW, I taught a primary class for a short time. I have been working with the toddler age group for the last eight years. I have thoroughly enjoyed working in the toddler classroom. This school year I will in the before and after childcare program. I am looking forward to that!
