    Onsite Owner
    I started my career here at the Goddard School in 2008 as a teacher, and then as director since 2015. I took over as the on-site owner in 2022 because I truly believe in not only the Goddard School name, but in the high quality education our specific teachers give to the students in our care. I hold a degree in Early Childhood Development, so I know how truly important it is to set a positive foundation of learning in the early years of childhood. As a proud mother of three children, and learning through their happiness and early development, I hold a high standard for the quality of education that is being delivered to our children. I believe that they should have the opportunity to explore every inch of their environment with no limit as to what they are able to discover, achieve, and aspire to be.

My career in early childhood education started right after I graduated from high school in 2001 and includes working at the Boardman Goddard School for several years. Early childhood education continues to be my passion today. I love teaching and helping children develop a sense of independence, pride in their work and an appreciation for the wonderful world around them. I live in Boardman with my husband, two daughters, and son. All three of my children are Goddard graduates! I look forward to spending time with your children and helping them discover the world!
