Aloha! I have been an early childhood educational practitioner since 2006. I created a second Montessori toddler classroom for Calvary By the Sea Montessori school in 2018 prior to the pandemic; and I am delighted to be back again as the lead guide of the Hōku Kai toddler classroom and 0-3 program director. I completed my Montessori certification at Montessori Institute Northwest in Portland, Oregon, alongside a Master’s degree in Education from Loyola University Maryland. I received a bachelor’s degree in psychology in undergrad from UC Santa Cruz (go banana slugs!).

I am the only Montessori practitioner on the island of Oahu with an Internationally recognized Montessori certification specializing in the age range of 0-3. In addition to my work in 0-3 Montessori programs, I have previous work experience in primary classrooms,   offer in- home Montessori programming for  private clients, worked for one of the most popular  virtual Montessori schools in the country in 2020, and currently moonlight as an online parent educator and professional home organizer when time permits.   

My ohana is from Hawaii, and I was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area (military brat). In my spare time, I roam the island with my puppy Nalu, paddle out for the kookiest of beginner surfing, work out, and practice Tahitian dance.
