Started working at University Children's Center in September, 1999.

What brings you Joy:

I enjoy the honest and open nature of children. It is inspiring and rewarding when the children have an "aha" moment and the concept clicks into place. It is refreshing to experience with each individual child their thought processs and personalities. In childcare there are no two days alike, it keeps life interesting
