I was born and raised in small town Virginia, but a military life led our family up and down the East Coast, overseas, and then to the central U.S. As civilians, we moved to (and intended to plant roots in) Texas and that is where my journey as a Tinkergarten leader began. A fun new opportunity for my family presented itself, and we recently relocated and are proud to call the West Coast our new home! Having led Tinkergarten classes in Dallas, TX, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to continue doing what I love in our new home in sunny San Diego. Adventure and exploration are in our bones, and our children (ages 5, 3, and 2) can be found exploring the local parks with us and looking for new and exciting experiences all around San Diego County. We live for mud pies, monkey bars, and memories.
