Working here at Rainbow Days is definitely a calling from the Lord for me. The children I work with here keep me humble and focused on what matters in life. I have learned so much from them!

When I’m not working with our sweet kiddos, I love spending time with my husband and hanging out with friends and family. Fun fact: I enjoy coloring books and practicing calligraphy!
