Meet Michelle

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

I have been working with children for 31 years now. I started out being a nanny and a camp counselor and then I slowly worked my way into a center. My experience ranges from infancy-8 years old. I have an Associate's degree in Early Childhood Education, a Bachelor's in General Studies with a focus in Human Services and an MS in Psychology from college (online). I am passionate about working with and guiding children through their development as well as having fun in the process and teaching them life skills.
