She began at fifteen years old as a Sunday school teacher, and stayed in the early childhood development field for over twenty years, earning credentials from Pasadena City College and UCLA. "It is such a joy and pleasure to work with little ones. They are so impressionable and the Lord has given me the gift to be able to connect with them on a deeper level."
