Alana started at Our Neighborhood September 2016 in the Stepping Stones classroom. She has been apart of all three classrooms through her time here. Alana’s passion has always been to work with young children, although she has not quite known a specific area she would like to make a career in. She changed majors several times in college, going from pediatric nursing, to education to Psychology. Alana has lived in Charlottesville her whole life and attended Shenandoah University. Alana is currently working on a 0-3 month early childhood education certificate to continue her knowledge of young children and might continue her education with a masters degree in early childhood education. The roles Alana holds currently are co-teacher, family care unit, continuity of care mentor and member of the hiring team.
