Serving our community as the Director of A.C.C. Preschool Childcare Center has brought me great joy. I love working with children in the classroom– watching them grow academically and, more importantly, spiritually. I was born and raised in Youngstown. After serving for four years in the U.S. Navy, I graduated from YSU with a degree in early childhood education earning high honors. I am married to Scott and have three amazing children: Zac, Erin and Ian.
I started here at A.C.C. as a parent, sending my own children to school here. During that time, I grew a great appreciation for the Christian education and care my children received from the teachers and decided to work here myself. I’ve been doing that for the past 9 years. In March 2018, I was chosen by the Preschool Board to become the next director, starting the following May. In my tenure here, I hope to provide each child with the foundation to build a personal and spiritual relationship with Jesus. I will also ensure that they receive developmentally appropriate instruction in which to build their social, emotional, cognitive, language, and physical abilities to help them as they grow and continue to learn.
