I am a member of Celebration Center Church and have a deep-seeded passion for children and learning! I grew up in Puyallup and graduated from Pacific Lutheran University with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and a Minor in Theater in 2003.
My previous jobs include serving as Children's Pastor for two years at Bethany Open Bible and working in the Child Watch Center at the Mel Korum YMCA where my three toddlers could be at my side. While at the YMCA, I developed a curriculum for and directed "Kids Activity Time", which was a daily session of structured activities for children ages 2-6. This is where I gained interest in working with Preschool aged children. With the help of an incredible group of mentors, I opened Celebration Kidz Preschool in September 2009 and I absolutely love my job here!
My three boys are now 10, 9 and 7 years old and my life revolves around their school, sports and extra curricular activities! My husband of 14 years provides wonderful support for my dreams and passions for this Preschool. I thoroughly enjoy being part of the Church Staff at Celebration Center! Pastor Chris along with the Pastoral Staff, Elders and Trustees have offered so much support along the way and the Preschool would not be where it is today without them!
Celebration Kidz Preschool was developed out of a deep passion that God placed on my heart. I have an enthusiasm for this Preschool and a desire to help kids prepare for Kindergarten at their individual levels. I look forward to meeting you and your child!
