What I do at MNW
I am the Course Assistant for the Assistants to Infancy training program in San Francisco.

What I like about MNW
The community that is inspired here and grows each year.

A hobby
I love to sew. My great-grandmother and grandmother were both expert seamstresses and my mom taught me when I was little. Now I sew tiny mitts for Montessori washing activities.

A surprising skill
Helping infants and toddlers fall asleep. Nap time is my favorite part of the school day.

A time of day
Sunsets on the beach by my house, watching pods of dolphins swim towards the Golden Gate Bridge.

Favorite food
Gluten free pizza with garlic, basil and mushrooms.

Coast or mountains
Ideally both. Of all the places I've lived the ones I love the most are close to the mountains and the beach.
