Head Start & Early Head Start Director
I have worked with the Head Start program for over 30 years in a variety of capacities and I have served as the Alta Head Start Director since August of 2015. I have a Bachelor’s of Science in Child Development from The Ohio State University and have obtained a wealth of knowledge related to the Head Start program through attending numerous conferences, trainings, workshops and completing the UCLA Johnson & Johnson Management Program.
I oversee the day to day operations of both the Alta Head Start and Early Head Start programs, ensuring that all rules and regulations are being followed. I support all of the content area managers, work closely with the fiscal department in developing and monitoring budgets, collaborate with community organizations to serve our children and their families to the best of our ability, and focus on providing high quality comprehensive services for all of the children and their families.
The experiences that we provide our pre-school children in the classroom can impact them for a lifetime. Parents can send their children to our Head Start locations with confidence, knowing that they will receive a solid foundation to move forward in their lives through programs that have met the highest standards.
