I grew up in Vancouver, B.C., where I graduated from Capilano University in British Columbia, completing my BA in Early Childhood Care and Education. Since 2008, I have been in the childcare and education field. From my time in school and being with young children, I’ve grown a deep passion for advocating for the rights of children, as well as creating a platform for children’s perspectives. With them, I believe we are co-researchers, co-learners, and co-constructors of their knowledge. At the same time, I value the various needs of the children and families, especially building trusting and caring relationships with them. I try my best to introduce unique learning experiences to children’s environments, especially by incorporating music and songs. My hope is to model and invoke a spark in children, families and educators to think in progressive ways that truly focus on quality, equality, and equity within childcare settings. Aside from my work with children, I enjoy singing, dancing, spending time with loved ones, trying new things in the greater Seattle area, and going back home to Vancouver to eat ALL the food, especially sushi!
