What do you love about your job?
I passionately love going into the YMCA Child Development Center each and every day. It gives me a great sense of achievement in working with the children and their families, by creating strategic opportunities in aiding each child with a uniquely designed development plan, to enhance their education and learning experiences. I enjoy nurturing children as they become more independent and find them truly inspiring, and creative; as each child develops differently based on their individual needs.

Personal Information- Family- Hobbies?
I have lived in Findlay, Ohio for many years, being a devoted mother of three children, and proud grandmother of three beautiful grandchildren; as “Family” means the world to me. I enjoy Ohio State Football, fishing, cooking and gardening, horseback riding and spending time with my beloved bulldog “The Judge.” It warms my heart knowing that many years ago, I spent much of my childhood at our Findlay YMCA, and years later, here I am- right back to where I started and able to give back to our community. our youth, the same leadership, compassion and dedication that I was given as a child- very rewarding.
