Meet Our Director
In addition to my wonderful roles of wife and mother, working with children is one of my greatest accomplishments. I grew up in Dallas and proudly graduated from The Hockaday School. I continued my education at Brandeis University, where I earned my BA in Art History. Upon graduation, I began my work in art galleries from Boston to Dallas to NYC. After several years in the art world, I focused my creative skills in the television world on the West Coast. When my husband and I decided to have children, we knew we wanted to raise Texans! We returned to Dallas to start the next journey of our lives. I started teaching art to preschool-aged children and this blossomed into years of experience in developing early childhood programs, running someone else’s private early childhood facility and now, blooming my own kids garden.
During this chapter of my life, I have been lucky enough to mix all the passions of my life – family and early childhood education. I have two wonderful children to learn from and influence on a daily basis — Judah, 13, and Pesha, 12, as well as many other amazing little creative souls that allow me to nurture them. It is a pleasure and an awesome adventure to be involved in children’s individual creativity and discovery. It makes my heart swell to know that I am allowed to help inspire their ingenuity.
