Abby was raised in the Midwest, living the first 25 years of her life in Ohio. She graduated from Ohio University with her degree in Psychology and completed her Masters of Education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in 2015. Having a love for young children and knowing the vital role the early years of life play, she focused her studies on early childhood mental health. Moving to California in 2015 and luckily landing in beautiful Belmont Heights, Abby stumbled upon Kid Works. She spent a year and a half as a teacher in the Garden Room before transitioning into her current role. When she is not at Kid Works Abby enjoys yoga, cooking and hiking.
“It is my hope that all children are able to creatively, emotionally and socially thrive in all areas of their lives, or at the least be given a chance to do so. I am thankful to have found a place that holds the same passions for early childhood experiences as I do and am blessed to watch the magic, joy and wonderment created by your remarkable little ones on a daily basis.”
