    Head of School, Serving our school since June 2017

    With over two decades in Early Childhood Education, my enthusiasm and love for children has always played a major role in my life. My career began 28 years ago in Waco, Texas, where I worked as an assistant preschool teacher for the Tennyson Playcare. Although I’ve always adored children, this job really ignited a spark. I wanted to learn more about how children develop and learn. As I focused on expanding my knowledge, I obtained my degree and certifications in Early Childhood Education and Care. Meanwhile, I enthusiastically pushed forward in my career. I went on to become a Lead Teacher, Master Teacher, Assistant Director, Parent Partnership Coordinator, and most recently, Principal of a Private School in Broken Arrow. Each and every role brought on something new, giving me a well-rounded, multi-faceted perspective. Although each was unique in its own responsibilities, all of these roles danced around one central theme: a deep love and burning passion for the education of young children.

    I am in education because, for me, it's the most effective and most enjoyable way to change the world. That's the bottom line; this world needs change, and this is how I choose to make my impact. Early Childhood Administration allows me to work with precious hearts and minds. It allows me to guide and empower our youngsters to become literate, engaged, and creative human beings who care passionately about the world they live in.

    Aside from working as a Childhood Education Professional, I am also a wife and mother. I have a wonderful husband named Josh, and a sweet eleven year-old daughter named Jordyn. The three of us truly enjoy spending time together as a family, especially when we are cheering on our beloved OSU COWBOYS (sorry Sooner fans)!!!

    It is an absolute honor to serve as Head of School, and I look forward to getting to know each and every family member that becomes a part of the Primrose School of South Tulsa.

    I am returning to Oklahoma to make my dream of owning a Primrose school a reality. I believe that every community should have access to premier early education options that are dedicated to the belief that who children become is as important as what they know.

    When I was expecting our first child, I was on a never-ending quest for quality child care in our community. I came home in tears because I did not find people I could trust to keep my child safe when I went to work. Working parents should not have to worry about their children while they are pursuing their professional ambitions.

    When my husband and I moved to Franklin, Tennessee, in 2011, we went through the process of searching for child care for our daughter all over again. The first school we visited was a Primrose school, and we immediately knew we found what we had been looking for. We were impressed by the thoughtful curriculum and impressive character-building focus of the Balanced Learning® approach.

    My sister, who lives in the Tulsa area, was looking for child care and had similar trouble. When she had the opportunity to visit the Primrose school my daughter was attending, she fell in love with it and said Tulsa needed a Primrose too. We love the Tulsa community, so we are happy to be moving back home to provide a Primrose school where children can grow in curiosity, creativity, confidence and compassion.

    Before pursuing my passion of owning a Primrose, I worked as a senior manager for a Fortune 500 company. I hold a bachelor’s and a master’s degree from the University of Oklahoma. Andy and I met in Michigan and moved around the country throughout our careers. Our family made our most recent move from Tennessee to Tulsa. The whole family, including our three children Senna, Olivia and Maxwell, will have a part in the Primrose Experience, as they will attend the school and Explorers Program.

    Owning my own business has always been a dream of mine. Our family is proud to be opening a Primrose school, and we want our community to be proud of this school too. We’re looking forward to providing a brighter future for all children, starting with the ones in Tulsa.
