Any other degrees, schooling, or training of note?: B.A in Biology and Anthropology from Knox College in Galesburg, IL; Masters in Education from Loyola University in Maryland

What do you love about Montessori? Loving to learn in the most natural way!

3 things you can’t live without: family, laughter and (since moving to California) California!

Most favorite trip you’ve taken OR dream vacation: Italy for finding my path; Oahu for celebrating my family.

Favorite local treat: An Elementary Montessori program for my daughter – 💕 Bergamo!

One rule you live by: As my sister taught me “saw the log in front of you” (do your very best in every job that’s given to you no matter how big or small)

Favorite quote:

For the children and the flowers.
Are my sisters and my brothers
Their laughter and their loveliness
Could clear a cloudy day
Like the music of the mountains
And the colours of the rainbow
They’re a promise of the future
And a blessing for today

-John Denver
