After receiving my bachelors degree in English and graduating with honors, I worked as an early childhood educator and received my 90 hour childcare certification and 45 hour infant/toddler certification. I enjoyed part time babysitting during my time as an educator. I then became a full time (pre-covid) homeschool mom to my now 8-year-old daughter. I also worked for 9 years as a director of Woodlawn Manor Living History Museum, educating children K-5 in American History. As a hobby, I passionately enjoy painting fantasy realism.
