I began my career with CMLC in 2011, working at the Sellwood School as the Preschool Teacher and Assistant Director. I have a Masters in the Art of Teaching and a Bachelor's Degree in Human Development and Family Sciences. I have worked with a variety of ages from infants to sixth grade and I learn something new from the children each day! I love the supporting and welcoming environment that CMLC creates for its kids, families, and staff!

I have an Associate's Degree in Early Childcare Education and over 7 years of experience in a childcare center. I have been with Creative Minds for over 5 years now. I started off as the Lead Toddler Teacher and worked my way up to becoming Assistant Director here at our Brentwood location.

I am grateful to Creative Minds and Cadence Education for sharing their family with me. I enjoy walking into work each day being greeted by the smiles from our little ones and their families. My passion is teaching young children to become independent, caring, and responsible individuals by providing positive guidance, nurturing relationships, and exceptional education.
