I’m an Australian born global citizen, having lived in Australia, Italy, Ecuador, Kenya, England and the United States. My family and I are happy to have called Seattle home since 2011. I have a Master of Education from Lesley University and a Graduate Diploma in Early Childhood Education from the Queensland University of Technology. My teaching experience ranges from toddlers to second grade, with preschool being my “sweet spot.” I believe that young children learn best in an environment that promotes hands on exploration, collaboration and play. I am very happy to be teaching in a joyful environment like Hilltop, where relationship, play and collaboration take center stage. When not at Hilltop I love to spend time with my family, travel, cycle, practice yoga, and take photographs at every opportunity.
I have been an educator in the River Room since August of 2013 but have worked in the field for over ten years. I love working in a truly emergent program and the child-focused curriculum I have found here at Hilltop because I have seen the wonderful things it has done for the children and families I have had the pleasure of working with. In my free time I enjoy cooking, going to game nights with friends, painting and spending time with my husband Patrick.
