Our Story

I believe children are special blessings, each containing an innate curiosity. Working with parents and children in many diverse roles has allowed me to nurture their thirst for knowledge.

I possess a unique ability to not just impart information, but to inspire children to actively seek understanding. This process mirrors the age-old adage, “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” Similarly, teaching a child a subject might see them through a single class, yet instilling the art of seeking knowledge empowers them to transcend boundaries.

I’ve spent nearly seven years as a Director at Cherry Creek Schools, a decade at Denver Public Schools, and 8 years with various other children’s programs, forging a distinct professional background. This journey has illuminated the power of play, evident in my interactions with my own son and daughter.

My son earned degrees in Pure Math and a master’s in Bioengineering from the University of Colorado. His Yale residency advanced his career as an orthopedic surgeon. My daughter excelled academically, earning an International Baccalaureate diploma and a BA in Computer Engineering from Cornell. She’s a notable engineer and will be completing a master’s in Electrical Engineering in the fall.

Enrichment play played a pivotal role in my children’s success and other kids under my leadership. It’s a powerful tool for learning, growth, and development.

I believe financial well-being often connects with academic success. Rent-A-Theme Entertainment offers interactive educational resources on a budget. Sharing resources eliminates storage concerns and maximizes use.

The belief in shared abundance drives this concept. Just as my mother’s wisdom taught me that blessings flow both ways when your hand is open, the same principle applies here. It’s time to embrace sharing and collaboration for mutual gain. Rent-A-Theme allows us to share the many benefits of PLAY in a life transforming way.

Rent-A-Theme is located in Denver, CO.
