      Administrative Assistant

      I was born and raised in Minnesota, went to college in Utah and now live in Washington.  My passion is working with children!  I strive to provide a safe, consistent and welcoming home for Marcus Mustang families where they can maximize their learning potential, helping them grow to have a productive and full life.  Taking away as many obstacles as possible and figuring out what works and doesn’t work for each and every individual is a constant puzzle I love to work on.
