Ms. Amy

I have been at KECC since 2013 and have worked in the Penguin, Bunny, Turtle, and Honeybee Rooms. This year, I decided to be a flexible staff member.

My husband and I were married in 2002.  We live in Barnhart with our three teenage boys. Alex, Ben and Ryan.  We also have two dogs Petey, Pickles and a cat named Princess.

I have been working with smaller kids as far back as I can remember. I received my  Associates Degree in Early Childhood. I also have my certification in Parents as Teachers from birth to age 5. Before I came to KECC, I did Parents as Teachers for the Fox School District. 

I look forward to working with your child and getting to know all of you this year.
