Administrative Assistant
Primary office:


I have a fine arts degree from KU and I was able to combine my interest in the arts and early education by teaching at the Lawrence Arts Center Preschool for eight years. I then moved to Hilltop in 2008 and taught in the preK classroom for five years.  I took the position at the front desk five years ago where I continue to enjoy meeting the families.
