Rainbow Station is now


In January 2018, Rainbow Station changed its name and rebranded as LeafSpring School. We are still the Rainbow Station you have come to love, we just have a fresh new look that helps differentiate the one-of-a-kind care and education we provide each child.

In the summer of 2012, I moved from Northern Virginia to Richmond with my wife and three daughters so we could be closer to family.  Before that, I had spent 20 years managing recreational facilities for a non-profit organization; mostly waterparks, but also golf courses, a boat marina and a gun range.  When we moved to Richmond, we decided to go into business in order to take advantage of my experience operating facilities.  Although we evaluated several business opportunities along the way, once we found that Rainbow Station at The Boulders was available, we knew it would be the perfect fit.  Along with my Education degree from Old Dominion University, teaching experience, and love of children, I can now put my business experience to use at Rainbow Station, providing outstanding education, service and fun.

I am a 2007 graduate of the University of Richmond and a 2015  graduate of the Bon Secours College of Nursing. Working at Rainbow station is where my past career as a Spanish teacher and current career as a nurse work together hand-in-hand. I have clinical experience ranging from the children’s hospital, the emergency room, labor and delivery to womens’ specialty and other medical/surgical units. My husband Jermaine and I are the proud parents of our son, Jaxson. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and traveling.
