I am a Queens native, mom of 2 active young boys, a special education trained teacher and perpetual student of nature and play. My family and I love exploring different parks and nature preserves around NY. We also love lying on the grass and staring at the clouds on any given day. Though I grew up in Queens, I always look back with fondness climbing my cousin's fruit tree in the Philippines as well as the days I could play with my neighborhood buddies right outside our apartment in Woodside, Queens until sunset. I would love to be a part of creating these valuable childhood experiences and cherished memories with your family!
