Scarlett is from Gaithersburg, MD and earned her Bachelor’s from the University of Maryland Baltimore County with a focus on philosophy and applied ethics. While working at her first preschool, she earned certification in Early Childhood Education. As a former Girl Scout, she always found joy in the woodland areas of her home and has sought to bring the same sense of wonder and adventure to young children. She believes that early exposure to nature and the freedom to play can help to foster confidence, resilience, and cooperation that will carry a child through to adulthood.
Before moving to Washington, Scarlett was a pet sitter in Georgia. She loved helping pet parents have peace of mind in her daily visits and looking after all kinds of animals, from dogs to turtles. When she wasn’t working, she traveled to historic sites in the Southern US and abroad, including Japan and the UK. Outside of her love of animals and travelling, Scarlett is an enthusiastic reader, artist, and crafter.
Scarlett has been in Washington for almost a year now and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. She has settled in happily with her wife of 3 years, her roommate, and six rescued cats and enjoys every moment she can get out of doors, rain or shine.
