BA in Performing Arts from Western Michigan University
I am thrilled to be a part of the Kazoo staff! Since 2013 I have enjoyed teaching Kazoo summer camps, assisting in Extended Day and occasionally substitute teaching Pre-K to elementary. I am a nurturer by nature. I have always loved children, watching them grow and nurturing their exploration through life. I am currently a nanny for two children I have had since 2015. I am also an active Birth Doula with Rootead Doula Collective.
In the Kalamazoo community, I have been seen and heard on stages, film and radio for over 20 years. I am passionately involved in the area’s LGBTQ community. At home I have an amazing life partner, 2 dogs and six cats, and am a lover of all animals. Life is wonderfully full.
My passion for the performing arts and the healing arts pair beautifully together with my love of nature to help educate and nurture each and every child I get to share time with. I’m really looking forward to a wonderful year with our Natural Learners.
