I have been a teaching preschool since 1996. I have an AA degree in Early Childhood Development and am working towards a BA. I have been with STARS Preschools for ten years. I really enjoy working with young children and helping them to learn the skills they will need to succeed in school and in life.

I love music, messy art and science activities. I was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. I have two sisters and a twin brother. My favorite job ever was working for a season at Snowbird ski resort in Utah. I still love to ski! Before that, I worked as a nanny for a Federal Judge in Tiburon, CA. I also worked for Safeway for about ten years before going back to college to become a preschool teacher. I am married and have two children. Adam is 18, and Sarah is 16. I have too many pets to count and enjoy bringing them to visit my preschool class. In my free time, I like to read mystery books, hike with my family and dog, go camping and play zoo games on the iPad.
