As a professional in the field and as a mother of two young daughters, I have a vested interest in all aspects of early childhood. I am an advocate who promotes the importance of providing young children, specifically infants and toddlers, with high-quality learning environments that focus on social/emotional development through healthy relationships in culturally diverse and inclusive settings.
I will continue to work collaboratively with other leaders in New Jersey to effect policy change that supports young children and those who care for them. I will carry on the work of current and past influential leaders who advocate for children, keeping in mind social changes. As an emerging leader, I will strive to ensure that all young children have a place to grow, explore, and learn in loving, supportive, and safe environments.
