Can you share more about your role? How do you support the community through your work? 

As the Early Education Specialist, I provide training, technical assistance, coaching and support to ensure all Nevada Ready! funded centers in Southern Nevada are operating high quality Pre-K education programs. This ensures Nevada’s children are safe, healthy, and thriving during their first years of life. 

Please share what inspired you to join Team UWSN? 

I enjoy helping others, teaching them, and watching them grow. I was inspired to join UWSN because of the amazing way they help the community connect with organizations that help with every aspect of the process you are going through. 

How do you have fun in Las Vegas? 

I enjoy hiking at Mt. Charleston, Lone Mountain, and Red Rock trails. I love that it gives me different perspectives of our beautiful city. 

What is a fun fact about you? 

I love to create things using my Cricut and I have an abundance of Mr. Sketch scented markers.
