Personal Statement: Working with children and families is inspirational to me. Passion is defined as any powerful or compelling notion or feeling. Denis Diderot once said, “Only passions, great passions can elevate the soul to great things.” In my soul I feel that children and families are the most beautiful creatures on the earth. I believe that it is through human relationships, connections, nurturing and love that we open the door to inspire greatness; inspire potential in the soul. I love being a part of a system
that focuses on strengths, hope, well being and resiliency. I hope to be a stepping stone, a planted seed, a part of someone’s journey that invites them to see their reflection and feel their greatness.
Fun Facts about You: In my spare time, you can find me charging the net to spike the ball while playing volleyball with her friends.
Why did you choose Tanager Place? My values, beliefs and philosophical view of children and families aligns with Tanager’s mission and vision. Tanager Place is always centered around doing what is best for children, family and staff.
