Executive Director since April 2017
BA in Communication Studies
Mainspring is a special place and I'm thankful that I get to spend my days with such wonderful kids, parents and staff. This is a second home for our families and it's one that is filled with laughter, love, learning and guidance. And in the end, we send our families off with the knowledge and skills to succeed in school and in life. I love that we can truly make a difference in our community at a grassroots level.
Education Director since May 2015
I love the creative environment that Mainspring bolsters, not only for the children, but also for the teachers in our program. Children at these ages are so wonderfully curious about the world they live in; I'm glad I get the chance to experience the discovery and amazement they find out there.

Mainspring grabbed my heart from the moment I first walked through the door and hasn't let go. We are dedicated to growing our city's youngest children. It is a diverse place full of learning, relationships, support and love. I am grateful to be a part of the mission to see all children prepared for life ahead.
