I was born and raised in Seattle. My grandma ran a licensed childcare out of my childhood home here on Queen Anne. It was because of her that I developed a passion for working with youth. In high school, I worked as a tutor and began seeking out ways to volunteer with children. I attended Western Washington University and graduated with a degree in the Psychology of Human Development with an endorsement in Elementary Education. After graduating, I found a place here at Queen Anne Elementary. Since 2013, I have worked in the K-1 classes as a tutor as well as working here at Kids Co.
