Needham Children’s Center has been my professional home and second home to my family since 1980. Starting as a preschool teacher new to the field, I continued my education earning a Masters in child development from Wheelock College. My 30 plus years at NCC have been equally divided between classroom teaching and administration. Working with children and families has been an extremely rewarding career. My husband and I have lived in Needham since 1972 raising our children and actively participating in the Needham Early Chidhood Council, Needham youth sports and St. Joseph’s Parish.
