In 1956, my mother, Tressie Lynch and my Aunt, Lucille Hardin started one of the first day care centers in the state of West Virginia, The Tiny Tyke Daycare located in Westover. In 1972, I began working with my mother until her retirement in 1984. In 1985, Donnie and I purchased the house on Ellen Lane and I ventured out on my own. I am Stars Certified and attended years of WV STARS Trainings. I attended WVU.
