Angela (she/her) Learning Specialist in Lavender (preschool-kindergarten).

Angela was born and raised in Southern New Jersey near Philadelphia and considers herself a jack-of-all-trades. In 2004 she attended the University of the Arts as a Craft/Metals major, with a focus on body adornment/jewelry. In 2012, Angela moved to Portland to officially study Middle Eastern Dance. While embarking on a dance career, she began training at Montessori Northwest where she received her AMI Primary Montessori Education as well as an MEd from Loyola University Maryland.

In 2019, Angela made another decision to become a Death Midwife.( Angela hopes to educate those around her, young and old – to teach them that death doesn’t have to be a scary thing to talk about.

When not at Puddletown, Angela is baking, reading, dancing, hanging with horses or creating in her art studio. She and her husband love spending time exploring, staying at various Air BNBs, creating jewelry together, and snuggling and singing to their two cats, Baby Kitty and Tiki B.!
