Being a big promoter of success in education, she decided to enroll her kids into the Mathnasium program. Having a love for children and seeing how the Mathnasium program boosted her kids math skills gave her the desire to become a Mathnasium owner. Her goal is to help kids build a stong foundation in math while providing the confidence to tackle any problems coming their way. At Mathnasium we teach math that makes sense, while having fun! She believes kids believing in themselves and enoying what they do, will be successful.
