Mikaela was born and raised in Natick, Massachusetts, a small town outside of Boston. With a very early passion for working with children, she became a preschool assistant teacher at 14 and completed classes in high school to get her teaching license upon graduation. She worked for eight years at Tobin Children School in MA. She has her associates degree in Early Childhood Education.
Mikaela moved to Colorado three years ago and has been working at the Boulder JCC preschool. During her time at JCC she worked directly with students with special needs, and soon realized that she wanted to pursue further experience and education in the field. She will begin her bachelor’s degree in Special Education in the fall of 2019.
In her free time she enjoys exploring the mountains with her dog, spending time with friends and family, horseback riding, skiing, drawing, and painting.
