I have been working at CDHN since 2001 as a field monitor/supervisor and office support. Prior to working here, I was an Educational Coordinator, Pre-school and Kindergarten Teacher.
During my free time I enjoy walking, boating, and most outdoor activities with my husband and three children. You will often catch me working on a puzzle or reading a book.
I am very happy to be a part of the team at CDHN. I started here in May 2014. Helping others is something I find extremely rewarding. On a personal side, I have a great love for animals, enjoy weight lifting and spending time with my family.
I started working part time for CDHN in 2015. In September 2016, I became a full time part of the CDHN office Staff. I enjoy my job mostly because I feel by helping our educators; I am helping better the lives of children. I graduated from Bridgewater State University with my Bachelors of Science in Early Childhood Education and Care, specializing in nutrition and physical fitness. Prior to working here, I taught in a private childcare facility as a preschool teacher and was a nanny for many years. I have always enjoyed working with children.
I enjoy many outdoor activities such as playing soccer, snowboarding, hiking and all things water, especially the beach and boating.

I am so excited to be one of the field monitors at CDHN in 2019. While I was a family childcare provider, I received tremendous support from Debbie and Rita. They are role models for me and have helped me to be able to work with all the providers in my territory.
I speak Cantonese, Mandarin and English.
I am passionate about playing tennis.

I am very grateful for the opportunity that I was given to be a part of the CDHN team in 2019. I am a certified interpreter in English/Spanish with a certification in Human Services. I am excited about this new opportunity because I love the idea of interacting and helping the providers face to face. I am a mother of two beautiful girls Magnolia 19 and Junelia 12 and they keep me very busy. On my spare time, I am usually at the dance studio cheering my 12 year old on!
