I have been operating childcare out of my home since 2001. I have received my CDA
(Child Development Associates) and take 30 hours of child development training
annually, to stay up to date on the best care practices. Before opening my childcare, I worked as a Nursing Assistant, so caregiving has always been a passion of mine. I have four children of my own that are all in highschool or college now. I truly love the joy it brings me every day, when I see a kiddo learn something new or accomplish
something they didn’t think they could do; it’s priceless.
Staff is required to hold the following current certifications and trainings:
Adult, Child, Pediatric CPR/First Aid
Oregon Food Handlers Permit

Enrolled in the Central Oregon Registry Background, complete with fingerprinting
Outside of work I love doing outdoor activities such as camping, hiking and running. I enjoy spending time with friends and family. I am passionate about working with kids because I love seeing where their creativity and imagination takes them!
