Meet the Admin Team
Meet the administrative staff at Small Faces!
I first started teaching at Small Faces in 2004 shortly after earning my masters degree in education. I fell in love with the child centered, play based philosophy of the center. After five years teaching and working as office manager I was invited to replace the outgoing Executive Director (who had just finished 25 years leading Small Faces). My wife and I have two young daughters who I am excited to see experience Small Faces.
Assistant Director of Enrollment
I started my career in the Early Childhood Education field in 2003 as a Lead Toddler Teacher. In 2003 I earned my AA in Early Childhood Education from Edmonds Community College. Since then, I have worked in various roles in early learning centers, including Assistant Director and Mentor Teacher. I love working with children, families and teachers because I believe supporting a school helps build brighter communities…I find it an honor to contribute to that brightness!
Assistant Director of Programming
I began my work in Early Childhood Education in 1990 as part of a college practicum. Since then I’ve had many positions in different schools, including teacher, mentor teacher, and curriculum coordinator. I came to Small Faces Child Development Center in 2018, having been attracted by Small Faces’ reputation as a leader in play-based curriculum. I have lived in Seattle since 1995, and I love the opportunities in this city to experience art and culture.
