After graduating from the University of Vermont in 2000 with my Bachelors in Early Education, I spent time in the field as a teacher working in California and Vermont. Some of these experiences included teaching Kindergarten in the Mission district of San Francisco; supporting young children and young professionals at the University of Vermont Campus Children's School and working at the Bellwether school integrating a holistic approach to Early Education. The context of each program varied offering valuable experiences also influencing my decision to go back to Graduate School for Leadership Studies at the University of Vermont in 2003.
After graduate school, I began teaching adults through Union Institute and University, Lyndon State and the Community College of Vermont. My Professional Discovery work has spread through New England reaching out to nearly 307 venues and an estimated 2,435 EC providers since 2007. My daily work has varied since 2007 when my son was born. I have found great places to work with flexible schedules so that I could put my children first. I have been a consultant, program director and outreach teacher in order to now be with my two children ages four and one. My husband, has his own Property Maintenance Company in our home where we share an office now. My home and heart.
My professional goal has always been dedicated to connecting with Early Childhood Professionals and Parents to share ideas and rich resources to engage and energize our days with young children.
