I have an associate’s degree in General Studies from Ivy Tech and am finishing my bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education from Oakland City University. I have a passion for educating young children, and am thankful I get to cheer them on as they reach new milestones and make new discoveries. My goal is for every child I come in contact with to feel loved, welcomed, valued, and important. I did volunteer work at St. Vincent Early Learning Center in high school and immediately knew it was the place for me. It is a student-centered community that I am proud to be a part of.
