My interest in childhood development began when I looked for a suitable program for my then 2 yr. old son and I couldn't find one that I really loved... so I decided to start my own. Since then, all 3 of my children have graduated from KFD and are currently enrolled in the SFUSD. Prior to the birth of my son, I cooked at many Bay Area restaurants specializing in pastry. I received my degree in Hospitality Management from my native country, South Africa. My interests are cooking, baking, reading, listening to NPR and hiking.


I graduated from the teaching program of Queen's University, Belfast in 1995 with a BA in Education, Honors. Throughout my degree, I studied and worked with children of all ages. After graduating, I worked as a substitute teacher and then travelled extensively through Asia and Australia, finally settling in San Francisco. I am currently continuing my education with Early Childhood Development classes at City College. I am proud to be a Site Supervisor on the California Child Development Permit Matrix system. Prior to working in Kelly’s Family Daycare I worked part-time at Treehouse Preschool in Noe Valley. I am now the very proud mummy of Chloe.
