I was born in Canada and grew up in the multi-cultural city of Toronto. My childhood, when not in school, was filled with trips to Kensington Market, Chinatown, Little Italy, Greektown, and Little India. The diverse languages, cultures, foods and music of those neighborhoods all contributed to my love of people, travel and eating!


I remember the freedom of being able to disappear into the ravine that our house backed on to. For me, it was a magical place. The ravine was dense with vegetation - tall weeds and grasses, towering maple and oak trees and a small stream that wound through it. The stream was puzzling, as it seemed to both begin and to end at two major streets. Once it reached the roads, it simply vanished. I spent days that turned into years there - playing make-believe games with my friends, fishing, hunting for frogs and “bears”, riding my bike down the bumpy hill, picking wildflowers and “running away from home” for at least an hour when I was upset! This unstructured outdoor play taught me that I could find inner-peace, connections and creatively problem-solve from being in nature. And that it’s okay if you don’t have answers to  everything.


I soon realized that my passion was teaching, specifically teaching young children as they first make discoveries and connections about themselves, their lives and their world. That translated into a degree in Early Childhood Education and 20+ years of teaching in, and becoming director of, preschools. I firmly believe that learning is fluid - it continually evolves - and I am excited to keep abreast of the latest research in child development, technology, and global issues. This enables me to continually create the best possible preschool environment for children, their families and our teachers. The quick pace of change happening in our world, challenges us to keep learning and applying that new knowledge.
