After having spent my formative years in my hometown of Springfield, IL, I moved to Chicago in 2012. My background is in directing and facilitating nonprofit afterschool programs where I've worked with children of all ages all over the city if Chicago. When not at school, I enjoy spending my free time with family, friends, and my fiancée and our cat, Cleo.
I believe in using a holistic and individualized approach to working with children, with an emphasis on play, with the aim of providing them with the skills necessary to form strong relationships and make connections to the world around them. I am proud to be part of a community that shares the same values and love of learning as I do.
