I have a passion for early childhood education and have worked in a variety of family and childcare centers over the last twenty years. I have a Bachelor's in Early Childhood Administration, a Bachelor's in Business, and an Associate's in Early Childhood Education. My favorite activity is spending time with my two adult children and my grandpuppies.
