I joined Help Me Grow Wyoming in November 2018 as the Care Coordinator. I work with families, child care providers, and communities to provide child care referral services, child development information, and resources that support healthy growth and learning opportunities for children and families.
I am passionate about working with children and families to achieve their full potential. My big-hearted personality helps families gain access to community resources and support that can benefit them in becoming stronger and successful.
I have 5 years of hands-on experience with Early Childhood Development as a Lead Teacher in Early Learning Centers in Cheyenne, Wyoming and on F.E. Warren Air Force Base. I am enrolled in the Child Development Associate offered by the Pennsylvania State University and awarded by the Council for Professional Recognition.
