Thanks to the military I have moved and visited many places. Born in California and grew up in Jacksonville, NC. I moved to Yuma, Arizona towards the end of 2014 to be closer to family. I have worked in child care centers and on military bases at youth centers in England, Utah, Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. In Arizona, I’ve worked with the Arizona Early Intervention Program as a service coordinator for 4 ½ years. I am working towards my masters degree in special education with an emphasis on early childhood. I love working with children and being able to make a difference in their lives. In my free time, I love being crafty and painting. I love spending time with friends and family and I am a fur mama to a chihuahua and pitbull. I am a Disney kid at heart and the beach is my happy place.
