Our Lake St. Louis, MO Leadership Team
Hi, there! My name is Jen, and I am proud to be your Program Director of Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of Lake St. Louis. This program is truly top-notch, and I feel so blessed to be a part of it and I have no doubt you will too.
A little bit about me, I have a Bachelor’s in English from Truman State University and a Master’s in Special Education from the University of Missouri-St. Louis.
Throughout my career in early education, I have worked as an assistant, classroom lead, and as the director of a center caring and educating children with autism. I have had the privilege of working as the Program Director for our O’Fallon location for three and a half years before transitioning to help open our Lake Saint Louis location. My true passion is helping others and watching young learners succeed and develop over time with the help of dedicated and passionate early educators who inspire a love of learning each day.
On a personal note, my husband, Mike, and I have two boys; Wesley and Sullivan and a Pitbull, Archer. We are proud residents of Wentzville, MO and enjoy hiking, working in our garden and spending time outside every chance we get!
