About Me

Hello!
I am from Littleton and have lived in Colorado for 25 years.  I was raised in a military family with my 3 siblings, and traveled the world until my Dad retired in Colorado.  I am the Mother of 5 children, now grown.   Four of my children are adopted.  I am the Grandma of 2 adorable toddlers.  I am passionate about Early Childhood and believe that every child deserves a high quality Preschool experience.  I am a strong advocate of children's development and welfare.  I have worked for 20 years with County Foster/Adopt programs as well.  I am excited to be a part of GVI Preschool!  I look forward to working with the Staff, Parents, and Children to bring the highest quality Preschool available to Douglas County.
