Owner
My name is Bhoomi Patel and I am the owner of The Goddard School in Buford. I completed my Masters degree from Georgia State University in 2008 and have been working in the private sector as a Quality Assurance specialist for the past 12 years. After having two children of my own, I decided to do a career change and became part of The Goddard School family. I am a big advocate for early childhood development which is what brought me to the Goddard school.
