I am very outgoing and adventurous, and I have a contagious energy about me. Though I am just beginning my career in education, I have worked with children in some capacity for the past 10 years. My heart resides with the very young. It’s my desire to be an instrument to help mold my students into kind, compassionate humans. I received a bachelor’s degree in early childhood education from New Mexico State University. It’s a privilege to be part of Pathways Preschool and I look forward to sharing the educational journey with my students.

Originally from Pennsylvania, I have recently moved to Arizona in hopes to experience life in a different light.  I worked at the same preschool for eight years and have learned so much working with children.  I have experience working with infants, toddlers, and school-aged children.  I studied at Pennsylvania State University with a major in Human Development and Family Studies.  My main goals as a child care provider are to make sure the children are always safe, happy, and healthy!  I spend my free time outdoors, shopping, and hanging out with my family and friends.  I am so excited for my journey here at Pathways Preschool and I can’t wait to use my education and experience to take care of your children!
