Belkis graduated from the Pennsylvania State University with a degree in Health and Human Development with a focus on Family Studies. Her experiences range from time spent helping her mother with a family-owned daycare, to the years she spent working with Hort Woods through America Reads and her internship. Belkis is a mother of a baby girl, which only amplifies her lifelong desire to pursue a career in childcare. Belkis believes that the path to success begins when our little ones enter into this world, and strongly believes in curriculum used to ensure these little ones are developing to their fullest potential. She wants to focus on continuing to create a loving, positive and fun learning environment. She also hopes to write and illustrate her own children’s’ book someday. Beyond working with children, her hobbies include: arts and crafts, DIYs, cooking and good movies.
