I am a highly organized and detail-oriented individual with a unique work history that spans from being a performance artist and Broadway dresser to working in development in Africa. I created teen-based curriculums for the Rockefeller Foundation in Zimbabwe, and also managed the manufacture and distribution of school uniforms for Oprah Winfrey’s Angel Network in South Africa. I have spent the past 10 years working in early childhood development. I spent 4 years teaching Gymboree in Atlanta and NYC, 5 years working as a nanny for a child on the spectrum, and this past year I have been working as a caregiver for a very rambunctious 6-year-old boy with sensory processing issues, and his rock star of a sister!
Overall, the past 15 years have seen me transition from functioning primarily as a theater artist on Broadway & Off (both offstage & on) to working in more diverse settings. This is an evolution that has required an elasticity of thought and a willingness to meet new challenges that have made me an asset wherever I have worked. However, after spending over a decade aligning my skill set as a performer and creative thinker to a myriad of administrative and managerial challenges both here and abroad, I find what moves me most is impacting the lives of children as a teacher and a caregiver. It’s one of the things I do best! As a former kid who was super smart and eager to learn, I'm endlessly fascinated by how children think and how they learn. I have a real talent for making learning, or as I like to call it, "The Journey of Discovery," a lot of fun!
