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 three 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 am now thoroughly enjoying working in the toddler classroom. I find it fascinating and rewarding each and every day.
