What makes you excited to come to work everyday?

I love to see the progress that children make and the effects it has on the family as a whole. It's such a pleasure for me to be a part of these families lives and getting to celebrate their success with them. I also really enjoy working with such an amazing group of professionals. 

 

Favourite book when you were young?

"Where the Wild Things Are", and everything by Dr. Seuss

 

Favourite holiday to celebrate and why?

Summer holidays because I love to travel during the summer and spend time with family and friends.  Also, I love the beautiful weather that comes with this season.

 

Describe your dream ice cream sundae:

Cantaloupe and lemon gelato.  It's delicioius and it brings back memories of  being in Italy with my family.
