B.S. in Child Development and Family Life from Indiana State University; Certified in CPR, Basic First Aid, and Universal Precautions

I am thoroughly enjoying the opportunity to work with your children! My hope is that I can be a part of preparing your little one for their upcoming years in private and public schools. I feel strongly that this preschool atmosphere will give your child a step-up in their years ahead.

Besides working with children, I'm a person who loves to cook, scrapbook, and spend time with my pets. I also like spending time with friends over dinner or at the movies.

B.S. in Early Childhood Education and Exceptional Needs from Purdue University

Having completed my undergraduate in Early Childhood Education at Purdue, I am excited to work in this environment. I have been working with children in multiple roles throughout the past 10 years: in child-care, summer camps, church ministry, and mentorship programs. I enjoy watching children meet milestones in their development and look forward to helping children meet those milestones in the classroom.

In my free time, I enjoy reading and watching movies with friends. I am also an avid Purdue basketball fan!

Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential

My husband and I moved to Lafayette in July of 2019. While working on my B.S. in Wildlife Biology from Mississippi State University, I discovered that I wanted to work with children. I have worked with children of all ages in many diverse settings over the past four years. After graduation, I taught in the outdoor classroom as an Outdoor Educator at a YMCA camp in Texas working with 5th graders. I have most recently worked as an Assistant Teacher at a Montessori Preschool in Illinois. I enjoy sharing my love of science and nature with children of all ages. I am currently working on my CDA and I plan on continuing my education after that. One of the goals on my bucket list is to write and illustrate my own children’s book. In my downtime, I enjoy reading, crocheting, as well as cooking and baking.
