Children have been my passion since I started my first babysitting job at 8 years old. I have since learned a great deal about the lives and love of children and their families. My professional journey began in New Hampshire as a multi-age teacher and assistant director. When the winds blew me south to Florida in 1995, I landed at TLC Preschool and continued my career as a preschool teacher and director. In 1998, I was given the opportunity to own and operate this successful quality early education program.
In addition to being owner/director,I and an adjunct professor, professional speaker and trainer to many college students, early care facilities and present at several state-wide conferences.
I work closely with Department of Children and Families and Early Learning Coalitions as an advocate for those children/families at high risk as to provide insight and input to a child’s well-being and articulating possible strategies for family success.
I thank God for the privilege of working with hundreds of students at IRSC to guide them in the field of early childhood education as well as the thousands of children and families throughout my 25 year history.
