Pre-K Teacher
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Child and Family Studies with a concentration in child development and a minor in studio art from Eastern Kentucky University. From there, I became the lead teacher in a preschool classroom within the Head Start program of Ohio, which allowed me to develop a strong teaching foundation.

I discovered Virginia Chance School while relocating to Louisville. After learning more about their approach to learning, I knew I wanted to become involved with VCS. I have a passion for art and the creative process and a love for nature. Both of which are essential components of the play based program at VCS. By having the freedom to explore the world around them safely, students develop confidence in themselves as lifelong learners, creativity, and inventiveness in their problem-solving skills and responsibility as members of a community. 

This is my first year teaching at VCS, and I am looking forward to working with the teachers, families, and students. Outside of school, I love spending time with my family, kayaking, and going for walks. I also enjoy making pottery and growing flowers to make floral arrangements.
