Through this work, Angie developed her passion for early intervention, the importance of play and being able to be creative and flexible in the ways we teach as well as the ways children learn.

Angie is a Mumma to two beautiful boys, 4 and 2, where she now gets to explore this love and passion for play at home, teaching her boys about the world around them. Their favourite thing to do at home is play! It’s where they all connect, spend time as a family, learn about each other and go on the best creative and imaginative adventures.
When Angie is not playing she likes to spend time with family and friends, listening to music, cooking, reading, crocheting.
