I have spent most of my life in the Seattle area, after a brief start in California. I love the beauty that surrounds us here – the mountains, water, trees, etc. I always say that you haven’t really seen Seattle until you see it on a clear blue-sky day!
Children have been in my heart from my earliest memories. I started babysitting at age 9, and I’ve never had a time in my life where children weren’t a joy and focus of my time and energy. I worked as a nanny and teacher for about 20 years and I still have contact with some of my kiddos who are adults already!
Aside from children, my great loves in life are spending time with family and friends, music, theatre, my church community, anywhere I can see the water, and books. I love learning and I’m always curious to know more.
I’ve moved from direct childcare to tap into my administrative skills and handle the business side of things. It’s such a great combination to still be in the company of children while I’m in the office. Even though I’m not always a part of the action, my favorite part of my job is building meaningful relationships, and I look forward to getting to know you and your family.
I am so blessed to be a part of such a great community of teachers and parents who truly are nurturing the next generation. We have a part in raising children who are confident, thoughtful and compassionate learners who know how to communicate and respect others. What better way to send them off into the world?
