Meet Our Staff
I am a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University where I studied Human Resource Management and Industrial Relations. I joined the LeafSpring School family in September of 2002 as the Lead Teacher in Yellow Room. I have had the privilege of holding several positions with LeafSpring School, including: Lead Teacher, Preschool Curriculum Specialist, Preschool Assistant Director, Site Assistant Director, Village Assistant Director, Village Director and now Campus Director. My husband (Eugene) and I have one child, Addison.
Outside of LeafSpring school, I am involved in many community organizations and ministries at my church and recently discovered a passion for youth mental health. I have served on a community health action committee, the Advisory Council for Equity in Education and the PTSA in Goochland County. I am extremely devoted to my family. I enjoy singing, crafts and spending time with family and friends.(804) 935-6939 Email
Preschool Program Director
I acquired my Bachelor’s Degree from Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) where I studied Psychology and Gender Women’s Studies. After I graduated and landed my first job as an infant teacher, I realized my passion and purpose within Early Childhood Education. For seven years I have had the privilege of holding several positions including Infant Teacher, Preschool Teacher, and Team Lead. During this time, I obtained my Master’s Degree from Walden University in Early Childhood Education with a specialization in Administration, Leadership and Management.
Being a Marine Corps military child, I have lived all over the world but have always thought of Richmond as my home. VCU is where I met my husband Javonte, and we welcomed our beautiful daughter Blake in Summer 2022. In my free time, I love exploring new places and trying unique foods with my family. I am obsessed with musicals and can recite Hamilton or Hairspray as if I’m a member of the cast. I love puzzles, crafts, and all things organization.(804) 747-0100 Email
Village Program Director
I joined the LeafSpring family in May 2014. I worked while attending college at Virginia Commonwealth University and graduated from VCU in December 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in Early and Elementary Education. I have worked multiple positions here at LeafSpring School including Substitute Teacher, Assistant Teacher/Teacher, Lead Teacher, as well as a Mentor. I left LeafSpring in July 2020 to focus on family and rejoined the team in February 2022 as Assistant Director of the Village and currently serve as the Village Program Director.
I love being able to nurture children and see how they can learn and grow through their childhood. I live in Goochland, VA with my significant other, Justin and our two sons, Tyton and Tegan, and our dog Stormy. In my free time, I love spending time with family and friends, crafting, tumbler making, and doing puzzles!(804) 747-0100
