Hi I’m Christina. I have been at Creative Kids since Summer 2016. I work mostly in the office, as well as help in the classrooms whenever is needed. I have been around kids my entire life from teaching Sunday school to babysitting. I have a bachelor’s degree in Communications and am half through my MBA. My favorite part of this job is meeting new families and getting to know the ones that are currently here. Genuinely speaking everyone here feels like family from the teachers, to the kids, to the parents. I love having my three boys here at the center because I get to see them learn and grow through the amazing staff we have. Every day brings something new and I enjoy living each day of my crazy life.
