I am excited to join the Cadence Academy Preschool team in Ankeny. I have worked with children for more than 25 years in many different capacities. I received my Bachelor Degree in Elementary Education at the University of Utah. My passions for helping children learn and grow while inspiring others to do the same lead me to become an Assistant Director.
