I have been in the childcare field for almost 30 years. I started with La Petite in 1995 as a two year old teacher and quickly worked my way up to the director role. Over my tenure with La Petite I have played many roles in making our school’s a top notch educational experience for families. My most favorite role as a director is the bonds that are created with the children and families. I have a true passion for doing what is best for our children and families.

I have been working with children for 10 years; two years as an Early Head Start teacher, I than moved to Elementary School for eight years working with the after school programs as a lead teacher and program director. My passion has always been working with children, empowering them and developing their young little minds, as well as families, giving them the tools needed to grow and succeed in life. I look forward to building relationships with the children and families here at La Petite.
