I started my career with Tender Care in 2008 as an infant room teacher at our Hermitage school. In 2009 I moved to our New Castle school as the Assistant Director. In May of 2012 I returned to our Hermitage school as the Director. I have always had a passion for working with children which led me to pursue my degree in Elementary Education from Slippery Rock University. In 2012 I obtained my PA Director’s Credential from Carlow University. I love the field of early education and enjoy helping others in the field to be the best teacher they can be. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, golfing, and watching documentaries. I love chocolate, especially M&M’s, and will never turn down a good chocolate treat. I feel lucky to be part of the Tender Care family! I love my teaching team, the kiddos and the families we have here at Tender Care. I am thankful to all of the families that allow us to be part of their child’s learning and growing.
