I grew up the oldest of 4 siblings, and providing care came with the territory. This turned into a profession when I was 22 years. I have been a preschool teacher, art teacher and behavior therapist. I have worked in several states as well as a short duration spent with a family in Italy. Most of my experience has been with children between the ages of 2-7 years; however I also have experience with children aged newborn to 10 years. Working with children is a continued passion and something that makes me smile everyday. I enjoy interacting with the kids as they explore the world through activities that keep them excited to learn and grow.
