Hello! I am excited to be part of the Westwood Presbyterian Church Preschool at such a pivotal time. I grew up in Los Angeles and have fond memories of my own early childhood experience. My love of art and admiration for children was the driving force in my decision to go into education. I have worked in education for 16 years, 12 dedicated to young children, teaching art, preschool, mentoring, developing curriculum, and as an administrator. I hold a BFA from California College of the Arts, where I studied illustration and education, and a master’s in early childhood education from Pacific Oaks.
It is a great privilege to be guiding WPC Preschool as we continue to serve the families on the westside and honor the mission of the church. I love working with our parents and family members to support a child as they realize who they are and what they are capable of. Part of my continued passion is to ensure that children have the opportunity to be part of a diverse community of learners where curriculum is developed based on the interest of the children and infused with strong community values. In my spare time I enjoy painting, kickboxing and walking Rue, my adorable beagle.
