What is your title and department?
Director of Family Outreach/ Outside Services
What is your favorite Learning Grove core value and why?
“I’ve got your back” is probably my favorite. I believe that for people to be successful in life you either need to lean on people for help or be the person that helps. The work we do at Learning Grove is hard, and we cannot navigate it alone. Having each other’s backs makes our team unbreakable!
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I have begun doing crafts using my Cricut maker.
What’s your favorite part of your job?
Honestly, I love every part of my job! The part that fills me up the most is when families have a success! When they succeed, we succeed.
What’s the most unique part about working here?
Learning Grove is an agency that is innovative and groundbreaking. We are an agency that truly values children and families.
How have you grown professionally while on our team?
I have grown tremendously over the past 20 years. I applied to work at Cincinnati Early Learning Centers (CELC) because I wanted the opportunity to learn from the best in the Early Childhood Education (ECE) field. I am happy to say that I have been able to do exactly that.
What was your favorite part about being a child? Or favorite childhood memory.
One of my favorite childhood memories is spending the summers with my grandmother and all my cousins. We would play games and work on jigsaw puzzles together.
How does the Learning Grove mission connect to your work?
Family Outreach work is centered around providing opportunities to empower families!
