About Lisa_J
Hi and Thank you for visiting my profile page. My name is Lisa and my passions include: family, friends, early childhood education, dance and pretty much everything child-oriented. I believe in reading with children daily, the power of play, and acknowledgement/support of individual learning styles.

Of course I also admire online shopping and LOVE supporting MY daughters in all of their endeavors. Diagnosed with MS in 2000, I deal with many symptoms, yet utilize the power of positive thinking to push forward. Our family unit is entering a new chapter of time, allowing me to once again enjoy the Epinions community. In other words I will soon become an empty nester, will you help keep me busy?!

I have an early childhood education certification and degree. I am also a licensed Cosmetologist, Esthetician, & Manicurist. During the past twenty years I have worked within various childcare/daycare/preschool settings including: owning a structured in-home daycare, managing at corporate centers large & small, assisting with childcare start-ups from planning through to full capacity, and currently call a smaller licensed center my work home. I adore the enormous naturalistic play yard there, and the smaller setting that allows us to shape the experience to each child's need - within reason. I welcome questions about childcare/preschool!

My family resides in the Pacific Northwest where we have raised two spirited daughters. Parenting with Love and Logic worked well. Our oldest, an accountant has been on her own for awhile now. This last year we completed an exhaustive coast to coast - literally: Boston, Pittsburgh, New York, California - college shopping excursion for our youngest daughter, a high school senior who will be obtaining a BFA in Dance. In the end LA won and AMDA will be her new stomping grounds in October; watch out Hollywood she is determined and eager! As mentioned this means a new chapter of time **gasp** we will become empty nesters. Except for the spoiled cat, that counts right? Perhaps it is time to get a dog?

Today is someone's memory for tomorrow. Make it a good one.
