I grew up in rural Holmes County, and after graduating from West Holmes in 1999, I attended Heidelberg College in Tiffin, OH where I earned a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education in 2003. I live near Burbank with my husband, Joel, and our three beautiful daughters, Avery, Lucy and Fiona, and our cat, Fleece. I love spending time with my family and friends! I also enjoy watching TV/movies, bowling, spending time outdoors, traveling and listening to music.
I knew I was going to be a teacher when I entered kindergarten. My kindergarten teacher sparked an interest in me to learn about the field of education, and I have worked with children in many settings for most of my adult life. I have had amazing experiences with children of all ages and I am happy that my current position allows me to work closely with Care 4 Kids families and staff. I believe caring for children is an investment in our community and in our future. It is very important to me to serve as a resource for all the children, staff and families of Care 4 Kids! I want all the children we serve to get the best start in life. Please feel free to approach me at any time if you have questions, concerns, or suggestions about your child's care.
