I am an energetic outgoing educator. I have been in the Early Childhood Education field for over 37 years. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood and Natural Sciences from Prescott College, and an Elementary Education Degree from Texas Women’s University. My experiences include Teacher, Director, Curriculum Coordinator, Head Start Liaison, and a Nature and Placed based Educator. I have one daughter who is now attending college.

I am so excited to be a part of the Pathways Team, as this is where I truly know that children will thrive and have the early childhood experiences they deserve.

I have a lifelong experience working with children in volunteering, ministry and teaching roles.  I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Counseling and minor in Christian Studies from Grand Canyon University.  While teaching full day Kindergarten my love for educating grew. I am recently married and enjoy writing, reading, knitting and spending quality time with family and friends.  I am so happy to be a part of Pathways Preschool where the uniqueness of each child shines through their ability to explore the world around them!

Assistant Teacher

Throughout my life, I have worked with children in various settings.  These experiences have led me to develop a passion for children and education.  I love seeing children build self-confidence and actively engage with their surrounding environments.  I have a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a minor in Family and Human Development and am currently finishing my Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience.  When I’m not busy with school I love reading and spending time with my dog, Sasha.  I am excited to be joining your child’s journey and to learn alongside them!

We’ll handle your child with care!
