Hello Families,

I would like to take this opportunity to say that serving as the Director of the beautiful community here at Athena Montessori Academy is a true blessing. I began my professional journey in Montessori eleven years ago, and I am thrilled to be here.

I am a certified Montessori guide at the Infant/Toddler level, a certified Primary guide, and a DFPS certified Childcare Director. I have held nearly every position on campus, and have also had the privilege of being a Montessori parent to two boys, Elvin and Marcos, both of whom graduated from Athena. I am honored to be welcoming you to what has become a second home to me.

I grew up in Nicaragua, moved to L.A. when I was a teenager, and relocated to Austin in 2001. Now I find myself in the most rewarding job I have ever had. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my two beautiful boys. We especially love swimming and traveling.

I thoroughly enjoy the daily challenges in my role as Director and love working with the amazing group of talented and caring adults at Athena. To those of you I do not yet know, I look forward to getting to know you in addition to your children.

Thank you for choosing to be a part of this special community, and welcome to Athena!
