As the oldest child, I helped my parents care for my siblings. This showed me the importance of stable care and how reliable care can help parents care for their kids. I grew up in a large family and have always been surrounded by children. This influenced my love of structured play, watching babies grow, and my desire to help out around the house wherever possible. Connecting with kids on their level is important to me. That’s why I am a big advocate for ‘floor play,’ including physical games, playing outside, crafts, and more.
