I first started working with young children when I was attending the College of St. Catherine’s in St. Paul, MN. I began working in their Child Development Center and Montessori school when I was a freshman in college and I have been working in the field of early childhood education ever since! I received my Early Childhood Education degree as well as my K-6 Elementary teaching license while I was at St. Catherine’s.
I was hired as the director of the Saint Ambrose Early Childhood Education Center (ECEC) in May 2000 and prepared the ECEC for its opening in September 2000. I believe that a quality early childhood education program is crucial to a child’s success in school as well as future life skills. We strive to create an environment where all children can grow and learn in a safe, nurturing, Christian environment.
I currently reside in Oakdale and enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy scrapbooking, card making, nature photography and spending time outdoors hiking around State and National Parks.
