I discovered my love for the Montessori philosophy and the MCHD community when my daughter enrolled in 2004. A stay-at- home mom at the time, I began working at MCHD as a volunteer and lunch parent, then subsequently as Director of the After-School Program from 2006-2012. Working as an assistant in the Toddler classroom for four years while pursuing a degree in Early Childhood Education solidified my passion for toddlers and ultimately led me to obtain my Infant/Toddler Montessori credential. I attended East Carolina University and received my degree as a Professional Massage Therapist and Natural Health Educator from Twin Lakes College of the Healing Arts in Santa Cruz, CA. I enjoy music, camping, swimming, yoga, and spending quality time with family and friends.
