I am the proud mom of two boys, my oldest is 25 and my youngest 15. I am of Scots/Irish decent and enjoy going to the many Highland Games in the area. My hobbies include hiking, camping, gardening, and crocheting (I recently opened an Etsy shop!), and of course, spending time with my boys. Professionally, I have worked with children/ young people since I was 12, when I helped start the preschool program at the church I grew up in. Since then, I have directed a few other private centers, (Specializing in infant mental health), developed youth programs at the YMCA (I even designed a building!) , served as a family case manager for underprivileged young mothers and their children, provided mental health case management and counseling for high risk teens and the Wounded Warrior Project. I also worked in the Public School System as a Special Needs TA as well as an Office Assistant. I am very happy to be part of the Atkins family and look forward to seeing you in the front office.
