She soon transitioned to the Arts Department to assist with curriculum research and development, programming, and show production. Shortly after, she joined the Marketing and Communications Department to use her photography, graphic design, videography, and movie making skills as our Digital Marketing Coordinator.

"I was drawn to Echo Horizon because I saw children’s natural curiosity was being nurtured. They were encouraged to try different things like dance, acting, music, designing, coding, building, athletics, and more. The children were not boxed into one skill or one way of thinking. At Echo Horizon, completing work assignments is not the end goal, rather the true value of LEARNING is."
