I was born and raised in Needham and Needham is still my home. I began my Teaching/Directing career at Needham Children’s Center in September of 1982. The field of Early Care and Education is a passion of mine. Over the years I have continued my education with classes at Wheelock College and training’s through many professional Early Childhood organizations. I am a member of the National Association of Education of Young Children and BAEYC which is an affiliate. I served as the Chair Person of the Needham Early Childhood Council for 8 years and still am member today. I am currently a member of the Needham Business Association, Needham High School Distinguished Award Community and a past active member of the Needham Suicide Prevention Committee. I am a Board member of the Needham Community Council which is a non profit organization which helps many individuals and families in need. Over the years I have seen many changes in the field of Early Childhood and I am happy to be growing with them.
