Victoria is a graduate of University of Nevada, Reno, holding a bachelor's degree in Special Education. She is a mom of four. When trying to find care for her children of varying ages she saw a need in the community for high-quality home-based care, especially for children under 3 years of age. She has worked at a play-based Preschool and a Waldorf preschool while her children were attending. She has mentors and colleges that are guiding and inspiring her in this journey. Victoria attends classes and workshops to help her hone her craft so she can better serve the children in her care. It has been her dream to work in the Early Childcare Field and is grateful to be doing this important work. She is supported and loved by her children.
