I started working here in 1988 as a teacher with 13 years as a teacher and 16 years as the Associate Director, now completing my career as the Center Director. My two “adult” daughters attended the Center. I am a certified Infant Toddler Specialist employed by West Ed, the Program for Infant Toddler Care providing college courses, technical assistance, and coaching to programs in the Sacramento Area. Supporting community based programs is one of my passions so I collaborate with Child Action (local resource and referral agency) providing trainings, workshops, and program assessments. Previously, I worked for Chico State, American River College, and Sutter Memorial Hospital delivering services to families.
Like many of you, my educational track had a few turns that became my strengths. I have an AS in Business Administration with a focus in accounting, a BA in Child Development with a minor in Business Administration, and a MA in Human Development with specializations in leadership, adult and college teaching, and Infant Toddler care.
I want to welcome you to the ASI family and encourage you to contact us should you need resources or information about child care, parenting support, fieldwork, course projects/thesis guidance, Child Development Permit advising, employment, or how we might collaborate with your program.
