I've been an educator since 1968, and have owned Early Bird ChildCare Centers since 1975.
My first degrees were in social work and psychology. My Master's program was in education. I was a tenured Kindergarten teacher at Springville Elementary School. I also served the district as a remedial reading teacher, and later developed and taught a program for gifted and talented students in grades 3, 4 and 5.
I reside in Sardinia with my husband Philip, a retired teacher of high school and college English and reading. We are the proud parents of two grown children, a son Christopher and a daughter Colleen. They are the reason I left teaching and opened the first Early Bird school. They loved it, and thousands of other boys and girls have loved Early Bird! But, the most exciting new experience for me has been the enjoyment of watching my grandchildren at Early Bird!
