Background and Expertise: When I first graduated from Purdue I began my career as a lead teacher at Head Start in Muncie. I only spent one year in Muncie while my husband finished his degree at Ball State. When we moved back to Lafayette I worked for DCS, breifly, as an investigator. When I left DCS I started at The Child Care Resource Network as the Inclusion Specialist. Over the years I have held multiple postions at The Child Care Resource Network. Other than the Inclusion Specialist, I have been a Paths to QUALITY Coach, CACFP Monitor, Paths to QUALITY Master Coach, Provider Support Specialist, and Professional Development Specialist. I have always known that I have wanted to work to change the lives of children and their families.
