With almost 20 years of experience, I started my career working in the daycare setting when I was 22. My first teaching position was as a preschool teacher for approximately 5 years and then opened my first In-Home Daycare in Howell.
Our business was growing so fast that we decided to build a home in Hartland, to accommodate the need for our current and future families looking for quality child care. Once again, we outgrew that space and that was when The Little Red Schoolhouse was established as we moved the daycare outside of our home to pursue my lifelong dream of owning a daycare center.
I also worked for Great Start to Quality as a Quality Improvement Specialist assisting childcare providers with their In home daycare operations and helping them achieve a 5 star rated daycare program.
My education background includes Early Childhood Development and Learning at CMU, and I continue to take classes yearly to stay current on the standards that are set by MDE and NAEYC.
Howell is home for my family. I love to both bake and cook for my family and host holidays at our home. In the warmer months here in Michigan we love to camp, and in the winter months, we love to travel to warm places.
I look forward to working with your family and can’t wait to speak with you.
Hi! I began my career teaching preschool at a small center in Illinois and absolutely loved it. When I moved back to Michigan, I decided to pursue my degree in Early Childhood Learning and Development through Central Michigan University. While in school, I taught preschool at Kristie’s in-home daycare and then here at The Little Red Schoolhouse.
These days, I am continuing to further my education at the administrative level and am excited to be working for Kristie here at The Little Red Schoolhouse and the Inspired Learning Center.
