What is your favorite thing about being a part of the Afterschool team? My favorite thing about my job is being able to do things with the students outside of the regular school day. Things like dancing, singing, exercising, and doing crafts.

What is the most important thing you do in your work? The care that I am helping to provide to students outside of the regular school day is so important not only to the students but to the community. The students and their families are connected to community resources through Provident and students are getting quality care and academic enrichment that they would not otherwise be able to afford.

What are your hobbies? I would say that I am an avid exercise person. I enjoy running and Spinning. I also love to travel.

A fun fact about me is… I am married to Kevin.. and my only brother, my stepson, my nephew, and my uncle are all named Kevin!
