Tinkergarten provides high-quality early childhood learning in the healthiest classroom of all—the outdoors. Families connect with trained leaders in their local community for play-based kids classes that help develop core life skills, all while having fun!
Born and raised in Orange County, I'm excited to connect the youngest members of our community with the joy of learning outdoors. I’m sincerely passionate about education and have experience in early childhood, K-12 and university settings working in operations, management, instructional, and research capacities. I’ve served as a classroom supervisor and site coordinator in an after school program at an elementary school, worked one-on-one with preschool age research study participants, and served as a substitute teacher at a Montessori school. Some of my favorite moments, beyond those with my own children (Max, 2.5 years, and Mia, 14 months), are from my time working directly with young children; their curiosity, energy, and creativity make the beauty and wonder of the natural world all the more enjoyable.
