I have held a management positions for Kodak and International Paper since 1994. I also served in United States Army for eight years. I use my leadership skills and background in business and the military to successfully manage day to day operations of the school.
I want to welcome all of our families to our school. I am thrilled to be a part of Goddard and I am committed to provide the highest quality preschool experience for the children in our neighborhood. I am always available to speak with you about your child’s experience here at Goddard school.
