I have a passion for working with young learners, helping each child develop in all areas of their development – academic, cognitive, social-emotional, and motor. I strive to create a community of learners that nurtures growth in a positive nurturing environment. Outside work, I enjoy the beach, reading, traveling, and spending time with my family. One of my favorite quotes is “What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make” – Jane Goodall

I have been working for La Petite Academy since 2003 and being a part of the children's early education and inspiring them to be lifelong learners has always been my favorite part of my job. I love being able to watch the students learn and grow from infants to young adults, and there is no better reward than knowing we have made a positive impact in their lives.
