Immediately after earning my B.A. and then my Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education, I became a child care administrator. My job, like all early education administrators, required me to solve problems on the fly, build plans, supervise, lead, develop a compelling and distinct brand, raise funds, lead teams, and communicate professionally with staff, families, partners, and our board. Even though I wore many hats, I always gravitated to the communication and promotional aspects of my job, and I always elected to use technology to achieve the most professional results.
In this role. I discovered a passion for learning about organizational development and leadership. With leadership training. I sought to inspire my teams with a combination of authenticity, transparency, accountability, and persuasion. This was the foundation of my interest in leadership and organizational development, which today still fuels my work with clients, and my other endeavor, Early Childhood Investigations.
