Mom, Mother-In-Law & Nana to Lil ADVENTS Founders
I started into early childhood education (ECE) in the early-1980’s with a small in-home licensed childcare. It was a few short years into this career that I realized I had found my passion and jumped back into college and gained the credentials I needed to open a state-licensed facility, complete with employees and children. Life rolled on and presented me with many opportunities to be an advocate for children, enjoy civic involvement, ECE associations and various community Board positions - all while growing our early childhood schools and assisting in the raising of our four children and grandchildren.
Early in 2019, I received a text from our daughter, Mindy. She said that her husband, Brandon and she had an idea that they wanted to share with us. Needless to say, that sparked our interest! We left that first idea meeting (of what is now Lil Advents Potty Time ADVENTures) knowing they had something unique.
At that time, my husband and I were still very much involved in the day-to- day operations of our 30+ year business, Junior Junction, when Mindy and Brandon introduced their concept to us. Only a few short months after our original Lil Advents meeting, we had the opportunity to sell our business and start into our new era: retirement! Retirement came at just the right time to get involved with Lil Advents Potty Time ADVENTures.
I am excited to share my many decades of early childhood knowledge, ideas, and suggestions as a proud co-owner of Lil Advents.
