I have spent many joyful years as a nanny, babysitter, and tutor, cherishing the magic of childhood and learning. Nannying young children—along with pursuing an early childhood education degree—has inspired me to become a preschool teacher, because I believe in the incredible potential of young minds. Outside of the classroom, you'll find me camping with my family and exploring the great outdoors with my two goldendoodles. Nature's beauty and its lessons have a special place in my heart. I have also been a caretaker for the elderly, where I learned about the wisdom that comes with age and the importance of patience and care.

My passion for teaching began in high school, when I started volunteering with children at my local church. I’ve been in the early childhood field since I graduated from college and started at Chestnut Children’s Center when it opened in 1995. I’ve taught all age groups and was in the kindergarten prep program for six years. I love to see how children use their imagination and creativity. I live in Millis with my husband and daughter, Eleni. I enjoy baking and spending time with family and friends.
