I graduated with a degree in Child and Family Studies from the School of Human Ecology. After spending some time working in for profit centers I found my way back to SoHE and the UW Child Development Lab. I have worked at the Child Development Lab since 2001 starting in a floating capacity. My job has evolved over the years to include more administrative work, while still spending time working directly with the children who drew me to this field. Working this capacity allows me to share what I have learned with students in the field and engaging with the children who remind me it is OK to never grow up!
