I grew up in Northern Virginia and have been working in the Early Childhood field since 2002. I joined this school is 2019 and I love it! I am a breast cancer survivor and a full time mother to 2 boys who I adore. My passion is education and curriculum and I find myself spending a lot of my time in the classrooms. I graduated from NVCC in 2005 majoring in Early Childhood Education and Applied Sciences.
Education: CDA in Early Childhood Development
I began my journey with the Learning Care Group in 2017. I started working as a Jr. Kindergarten teacher and I quickly learned that La Petite Academy was home and took a management position at the start of the new school year in 2019. Before joining Child Time and La Petite Academy, I was in various roles in management and classroom support. I have 2 children of my own who mean the world to me. I love where I work and the passionate teachers we have here educating our students. We are a family!
