For a more formal work and volunteer history:
For over a decade my work has supported strong, healthy children and their families.
Through providing high-quality childcare for over five years in northern Virginia, I have witnessed a wide range of strategies families use to thrive and make their way in the world.
While teaching children in schools and outdoors in Indiana, Oregon, Michigan, and Virginia, I have observed how learning something new and sharing it with others energizes children and adults.
Since 2009, my travels around the country working on organic farms growing flowers, fruits, and herbs have reinforced my belief in our shared responsibility to take care of the Earth in order to take care of ourselves.
All of these experiences strengthen my resolve to continue doing all I can to care for the future of our people and our planet.

I believe we all have a responsibility to create a healthy, enriching, supportive environment in which children can grow and thrive to reach their full potential.
Nurturing Growth was created to frame that belief with action.
