I began my career in Child Development in 1973 working in a private Nursery School with children ages 2-9. After 9 years I moved to Tacoma Washington and began my studies in Montessori education and opened a private preschool and licensed day care. After approximately 15 years, I made a career change and worked in the healthcare industry with the geriatric population. After 15. 9 years, I decided to go back to school and obtain my Bachelor Degree in human services.
