What I like about MNW
As a new staff member I love the warm collaborative atmosphere of MNW staff and students in our work for children. For me: Montessori heaven!
Visiting my two precious toddler granddaughters, one in D.C. & one in France. I Also love road trips with my husband in the Pacific Northwest.
A surprising skill
I was an avid snorkeler and sailor while living in Puerto Rico, and explored many small and beautiful Caribbean islands.
I love photography of natural environments and also photographing children engaged in meaningful work.
Words to live by
I love eastern philosophy and psychology as ways to improve my mind and heart
Working with the children, both mine and others. I belive its the most meaningful work anyone could ever do!
