I love being part of such an amazing company that cares about each family and staff that are part of each school. I’ve had the opportunity to hold several positions at The Learning Tree; Teacher, Assistant Director, Director and since 2012, Regional Director. My Regional Director duties involve supporting our classroom quality and curriculum with Curriculum Directors and Teachers, also, I manage all of the marketing at The Learning Tree. I graduated from Grand Valley State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and Special Education. I currently enjoy furthering my education and training by being an active member of several national business and marketing groups, as well as attending curriculum conferences throughout the year.
My co-workers know that my favorite part of being a Regional Director (besides being paperless) is my passion for supporting teachers and making The Learning Tree more fun with their ideas and feedback. I also have a huge passion for Highscope Curriculum and enjoy training staff on all parts of Highscope. I love that I get to be part of a team that is excited about true quality for child development. Together, we continue to improve the quality of our program and it’s important to me that we are continuously striving to be better. I don’t have an office so I am always out and about at a different location every day, hands on, with our team. I love to read the news and write about anything! Traveling out of state just to go on a hike is one of my favorite things to do. I love the state of California, but I love exploring Michigan even more.
