Our family’s story began in graduate school, when Brad and I spent our first years as lab collaborators researching and publishing together. During that time, our friendship quickly grew into a shared vision of building a wonderful life together. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with four incredible children. Like many other hard-working and fun-loving families, we always strive to instill strong values in our children and seek opportunities support our community.
“Be who you are, and be that well”
We believe each and every one of us possesses unique and special talents. It is our responsibility to identify and refine these talents, then ultimately apply them to make the world a better place.
Children listen, watch, observe and are greatly influenced by what they see around them. It is important not only to expose them to educational lessons and tools, but also to build their confidence through mentoring and challenging them to grow.
Through this, we can enrich and inspire the next generation of thinkers to discover their own talents and do great things with their future.
The STEM Labs is a creative environment where students can explore and develop their interests in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Children are challenged with fun and engaging hands-on active learning experiences and encouraged to build teamwork and leadership skills. Students engage directly with professionals in the STEM fields to understand technical applications and to explore exciting career opportunities. We hope that this innovative approach to education provides stimulating academic enrichment for children and quality-care opportunities for parents.
