    Position: Center Director

    In Education Since: 1995

    I love working for Bright Horizons because: the children are so innocent. I learn more from them than they could ever learn from me. I enjoy being able to view the world through their eyes and watching them conquer skills for the first time. They are so full of life and possibility. The world is theirs for the taking. They have no fear or doubts about what tomorrow will bring. They just make they best out of every moment.
