ABOUT ME

I am passionate about providing relevant, fun, hands on trainings for early childhood educators.  I have provided trainings for classroom educators, home care providers, home visitors, early interventionists, and management staff. I have been in the Early Childhood field for almost 20 years, from preschool floater, cook, teacher, and now management. I have also worked with home visiting programs serving children ages 0 to 3. I am completing my Doctorate in Transformational Leadership with an interest in how teacher relationships affect student behaviors. I am a registered NM CYFD Level II Master Trainer and a CDA Professional Development Specialist for Infant/Toddler, Preschool,  and Home Visiting.  I have 3 grown children - all in college, 2 dogs, a cat, and a very patient husband. I love to read and take pictures of New Mexico's beautiful outdoors.
