Crissy Floe (Y Kids’ ELC Director) – “I started working for the YMCA in 2005 as a teacher and became a director in 2008. I strive to be someone that children look back on years from now as caring, encouraging and supportive, even if they don’t remember my name. I am thrilled that I get the opportunity to make a difference through the Y in my local community. Together we can make a better place to learn and grow for all!”
Stephanie Travers (Whitney ELC Director) – “I am new to the Y but have been working in Early Learning for over 25 years. I have been active in Early Childhood Education organizations and an advocate to promote high quality program and experiences for children. My husband and I just celebrated 20 years of marriage and we have four grown children and one fur baby. My daughter is currently following in my footsteps working in an Early Learning Center! In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, long walks with my dog, cooking, reading and watching movies.”
Darci Hart (Childcare Billing Specialist) – “I have been with the YMCA for four years. I bring over 25 years of billing experience with me; before coming to the YMCA, I worked as a medical biller. Although I do not get to work with children directly every day, I love hearing all of the great stories from my peers of how we have made a difference in the community. I was born and raised in the Skagit Valley and have two adult daughters and two grandchildren. I am a huge Seattle Seahawks fan! In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, baking, and of course watching my favorite football team!”
Teresa Zumwalt (School-Age Director) – bio coming soon!
Anita Norman (Burlington ELC Director) – “I have been working for the Y for over 10 years and in education for 12. I absolutely love not only working with children, but facilitating relationships between children and staff. I am proud of the strong team of teachers I have at my site. Personally, I spend a lot of time out of doors; there is nothing more nurturing to me than nature. I am an avid gardener, and regularly kayak, hike, and bike.”
Tammie Young (Washington ELC Director) – “I’ve been working for the Y since 2007, where I started out as an infant teacher and worked my way up to a director. Working with children has become my passion! I’m very grateful to have a job where I get to explore this passion each day. Children are amazing and I have the pleasure of spending every day with them!”
