In my role as Systems Manager for Early Childhood Region 1, I work to support collaboration between schools, early childhood educators, family support services, community members, and families so that we can ensure our young children thrive.
Prior to joining the staff at MUW, I worked in Vermont strengthening the early childhood system. During that time, I graduated from the Snelling Center for Government Early Childhood Leadership Institute . Before that I lived and worked in rural communities in Uganda and Zambia to provide health education and assist with community development.
I earned a Masters of Public Health from the Rollins School of Public Health, Emory University in 2011 and a Bachelors of Art in Biotechnology and Molecular Biology with a minor in Geography from Assumption College in 2009.
In my spare time I enjoy finding the best ice cream spots, paddleboarding, hiking, gardening, and spending time with my dogs.
“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether be a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is the meaning of success.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
