WHY VCA: I am most passionate about connecting with my students, especially those with trouble learning or fitting in. I also love to help students solve problems and encourage out-of-the-box thinking.
EXPERIENCE/EDUCATION: I began working at VCA over 24 years ago when my daughter started school, and while volunteering with her class, I quickly discovered my passion for educating children. I began working in the lunch and after-school programs, where I was blessed with additional opportunities to learn new skill sets while on the job. I now possess 21 years of experience as a kindergarten aide and enjoy the continual growth this role brings from my students and colleagues. HOBBIES: My hobbies include camping, fishing, and reading, but I enjoy almost anything outdoors near water.
FAVORITE BIBLE VERSE: Philippians 4:13
INTERESTING FACTS: I enjoy spending time with my family and friends outside of work. My husband and I have been married for 31 years, and we have one daughter who graduated from LGCS in 2007. I love the outdoors and can often be found camping at the beach with my husband and our chocolate Labrador, Jax. Living a healthy lifestyle is very important to me, and I enjoy working out at least five times weekly. My favorite thing to do is explore new places, and one of my favorite adventures was a 2-week road trip to Yellowstone and back.
