Owner's Bio

I am early childhood educator, wife, mother of many, nana of numerous littles, and multi-faceted hat wearer extraordinaire. My passion and love for children, concern for families, and a strong sense of community is what drives me.

Recognizing families as the cornerstone of every community while vividly recalling the lack of support while raising my own children, I have yearned for an opportunity to provide for parents what I so desperately wished I had – peace of mind and extraordinary childcare. This is what every parent wants and needs while their children are in the care of another.
I’ve met hundreds of parents struggling to properly care for their children while simultaneously trying to fulfill numerous daily obligations. Have you witnessed the frustration and stress of a parent in a supermarket, at the doctor’s, or a restaurant vacillating between the task at hand while caring for the children? To that end, The Drop Zone, a short-term childcare solution was born.
