Ask me what I love most about Early Learning Indiana, and I’ll tell you it’s how the children come first in everything we do.
By providing training & technical assistance to child care providers and coaches, I get to impact the quality of child care for many, many young children.
I love that my everyday work positively impacts the lives of families and children across the state of Indiana.
We (our team) all have such different backgrounds, perspectives and experiences which leads to great conversation and tons of growth and learning.
My work has allowed me to help improve child care for families and children on a local, state and even national level.
I love being able to connect to providers and hear them talk about something they have changed in their practice that will impact the health of their kids and families.
ELI is constantly making sure we are doing the best for children and families in the state. We have great benefits and I love working with people that are passionate about this profession.
