Hi! I’m Jae

Mother of two daughters, Montessori teacher, entrepreneur, consultant, and maker of things …dedicated to helping you become the parent you want to be.

My goal is to add value to your world – your home and your children – more value than you ever dreamed possible! …by giving you tools that you can immediately use to create beautiful, organized, and thoughtful spaces in your home.

If you’re interested in Montessori, I can help you make it happen at home. As a result, your children will love learning, and you’ll support their untapped potential!

Story of discovery...
Often people ask: “How did you get into all this?”

When Montessori first crossed my path in college, it just...made...sense.

I went through the Montessori teacher training, and I thought, “I want every parent to have access to this information.”

While I was teaching in a Montessori classroom for 11 years, I experienced firsthand what a HUGE difference the set-up of the classroom makes, and what children can accomplish (truly beyond imaginable!) with the help of Montessori ideas.

After teaching for 11+ years as a Montessori teacher, I made the transition to being a stay-at-home mom for my girls. I wanted to translate everything I’d learned in the classroom to our home set-up. I wanted my girls to be able to take care of their own needs; for example, my girls can prepare simple snacks and enjoy doing spontaneous art and writing projects—all without asking for help. The physical set-up of the home helps them to function independently, providing them with many opportunities for lifelong discovery and learning. When you think about it, the home is where children truly learn how to think for themselves, how to be in the world, and how to live as a confident person.


I'm more sure than ever that a great home set-up is one of the most important things you can do for your child.

Which brings me to you...
