I am a writer, graphic designer, and illustrator, as well as a wife, and mother of two girls and a fantastic Goldendoodle named Copper.
I have a BA in English Language and Literature, and Linguistics and Language Acquisition.
After working at a book publisher and as a graphic designer decided to stay at home to raise my daughters. During that time I have intensely educated myself in early-childhood learning and psychology, as well as spending innumerable hours volunteering at our local elementary school, either in class, at the library, or as a substitute Spanish teacher in the mornings.
I believe that nothing you do for children is ever wasted, and when the children in my community do well the entire community thrives. I also believe that the learning and social interactions that take place in the early years are fundamental in building a solid base for a child's development later in life.
