Lucy was born and raised in Long Beach. Because her mother was a preschool teacher, Lucy was able to volunteer in many centers. At an early age Lucy knew she wanted a career that involved children. She became a student at Long Beach Community College. Still unsure what field of child care she would embark, she joined Kid Works family as the centers assistant in 2014. In three years Lucy has observed and admired the tremendous growth children make. She substituted for the Spanish Immersion program in 2016, leading her to an opportunity in becoming a garden room teacher starting the following year. Lucy continues her knowledge of children threw LBCC classes, workshops, seminars and of course in the Garden room.
