Since starting in education, I have found early childhood education to be the most important and interesting. I love watching young minds grow and learn with our program. After receiving my degree from University of Nebraska at Omaha, I taught music for two years. I started with La Petite Academy in 2012 as a preschool teacher, and moved to program assistant director in 2015. I am excited to take on the new role as director.

I graduated from Iowa Western with an associate's degree in early childhood. I have worked for La Petite for nine years at the Papillion school as a Toddler, Early Preschool and Preschool Teacher.
