    Hello! My name is Sasha Daniels. Although I grew up in Boise, Idaho, I have lived in Colorado the past few years while earning my Bachelors in Environmental Sociology at Colorado State University. I have worked with children for several years as a nanny as well as a preschool teacher. I absolutely love Italian food and trying new restaurants with friends and family. I am beyond excited to develop relationships with everyone in the Primrose family and help children grow into wonderful little ones!
