My name is Amy. Some people call me Amy Jo. Some little people call me Ms. Amy, one precious girl calls me Mama. I am a musician, an amateur photographer, a wannabe sewer and beginner gardener. I live on a half acre in peaceful Alhambra Valley with my husband, my daughter and our two shaggy black dogs.
I graduated with a Bachelor's of Arts in Liberal Studies from California State University Northridge where I also received an elementary grades teaching credential. Through nannying, my path wound from working with elementary students, to toddlers, and then with infants. I am a Lifeways Graduate (Waldorf Early Childhood Education), have completed the RIE Foundations course, Mothering Arts Training, and a Postpartum Doula core training through Natural Resources in San Francisco.
After the birth of my daughter, Sylvianne, in January of 2015 I began attending RIE classes and Waldorf Parent/Child regularly. Last year, I began supporting women on their journey into motherhood by leading Mother's Circles in Rockridge.
I've always dreamt of having a space large enough to gather with other parents of young children and connect in person. I'm so excited to provide an opportunity for self exploration and learning to our community.
