Personal Statement: Families are what give children the roots to grow, and the wings to fly. I believe that all children have a story to tell that can lead to a magical ending. Some stories come with a plot twist, while others may have some unfinished chapters.I am passionate about providing a safe space for children to re-write and reclaim their own story and help create a magical ending for themselves and their family.
Fun Facts about You: I enjoy spending time reading, being outside and engaging in water sports. I have a rescue dog named Bruno who rules the house. I have been involved in gymnastics sine I entered grade school and still continue to teach gymnastics at a local gym.
Why did you choose Tanager Place? I align with Tanager’s mission and have the passion to help children and families succeed. I also enjoy collaborating with the school system and helping children thrive and grow at school.
