I am married and have two very active boys. I love spending my time with my family and working out! I am so excited to see every year how each individual preschooler learns in all different areas.



Christy Irwin, Occupational Therapist (OT)

I have been and O.T. for many years… let’s just say more than 10 but less than 50! I’m a Colorado native and graduate from CSU. I have a 10-year-old daughter and a Goldendoodle that keep me on my toes. I enjoy spending time outdoors. I have a love for children and for learning. There is nothing better than watching children’s excitement with new activities and seeing them constantly change. I look forward to working with your child this year.
