I am a creative educator that is committed to helping children explore and learn in a hands-on environment. I graduated from Central Michigan University in 2005 with Cum Laude Honors. I received my Bachelor of science in Education, with my Major being Science and my Minors being Reading and Child Development. The year after Graduation I was a substitute teacher here in TC as I planned my wedding. After having my first baby I was a fulltime stay at home mom. I was blessed to be able to be home with my children for 8 years before beginning a very rewarding career at their Elementary School within the preschool.
I am a business professional. Last Summer due to my prior company’s restructuring, my position was eliminated. I had been the main source of our family income for the past 14 years. Although there was an opportunity to move out of state, Joy and I wanted to keep our family here in Traverse City, and in our home. Joy and I talked, prayed and we decided to pivot our lives for the good of our family and the pursuit of our happiness and start up our own family business. With our dedication for our family, Joy's background and passion for teaching and caring for children and my experience in business we partnered together to create RosyLane Early Learning Center.
