Meet the Team

My team is truly exceptional.

Together, they understand and embody the office philosophy that children come first. They are kind and caring to all children, treating each with patience and compassion, and always respecting the child’s unique emotional and physical concerns.

Additionally, my team members strive to ensure parents and guardians are comfortable, educated, and confident in the care we are providing to their little ones.

I could not be prouder of my team: it is an honor to work alongside these skilled, dedicated, and empathetic women every day!
