Hello! Thank you for checking out my biography on the St. Vincent Early Learning Center website! I have worked with children for over 13 years, and I truly love my job! I am so lucky to have the opportunity to help our youngest learners grow and thrive. I enjoy working at St. Vincent Early Learning Center because it is a family-oriented and child-centered organization. I am passionate about my work and constantly seek to learn and further my knowledge as an educator.
One of my passions is to study the relationship between culture and education. I graduated summa cum laude from University of Southern Indiana with a degree in Psychology and a minor in Anthropology. I also earned my Infant/Toddler Certification from Ball State University. Prior to my time in the classroom, I worked as Family and Community Engagement Manager with SVELC.
I value each family’s unique culture and identity and really strive to make that visible in my work. I am an empath who loves helping others. I have a son of my own, who is my entire world! I am a self-proclaimed extroverted introvert who enjoys spending time outdoors, drinking coffee, and baking.
