Assistant Director

I have worked at Creative Minds since 2013 as the Lead Infant Teacher in our Sunflower and Daffodil Classrooms as well as being the Assistant Director. I love being a support to families, teachers and children at my school because I consider them my family as well as a huge part of my life. I love watching the children learn and grow into smart, independent individuals that will one day move on from us to be successful in their future. Just knowing that I played a part in helping a child grow puts a smile on my face.

It is very important to me that anyone who walks into our school feels the love and time that we put into making our school the best it can be! Working closely with my Director and staff to make this happen is one of my goals here at CMLC.

I have both my children at the Cadence Sunnyside location and I am beyond happy. I had my kids at a downtown daycare center and communication was awful between us and the director, but when I came to cadence the directors made sure we weren’t in the dark. The covid protocol is efficient and they take everything seriously. I feel my children are learning and are safe from covid. I love getting pictures and updates on my kids and the teachers make sure to give us detailed info. They have a great play area and it’s fenced so no one can peek in. I’m so happy with having my kids here. I’m not worried for their safety

All the children are so, so loved! I appreciate the health-conscious food they provide. They're incredibly receptive to all concerns from individual behavior to philosophical consciousness.
