My mom was a teacher for several years and I loved giving out fake report cards and pretending to clean my classroom at the end of every summer. This passion only increased as I worked to earn my degree in Special Education. I was able to learn skills that help me with the mini members at my location, as well as my own little girl. I love to see kiddos laughing, crafting, and being active!

Sandy Team Leader


Credentials

CPR/FA certified

When I was little my mom ran an in-home daycare and I would be so excited after school was over that I would run home to hold and play with the babies. How my mom was able to get me to do my school work was I was not allowed to play with the babies until I got all my work done. Playing with those children was my reward, and still is! Children bring so much joy into my life. I have worked at many daycare's but when I started for VASA it was like I finally found my home. The environment here makes it a truly amazing place. When I am there I am uplifted by everyone around me and I get to do the same for them!

Childcare has been my passion for as long as I can remember, and I was ecstatic when I found my niche working for gym daycare's with the YMCA in California 2 years ago.

I love creating art projects that children of all ages can participate in, singing with the kids, and holding the babies and toddlers. I also have worked at a daycare in Draper as a toddler specialist, worked as a TA for a few different preschools and elementary schools, been a 4-5 year old camp counselor, and Nannie.

Tooele Team Lead


Credentials

CPR/FA Certified, Early Childhood Learning & Development Cert., P

For as long as I can remember I have wanted to work with kids. At young age I was put in charge of my younger siblings. Then I started babysitting kids in the neighborhood. Once I was in high school I took every chance I could to take classes to do with children development. My favorite was when I got to teach preschool. I think that was when I decided working with kids was what I wanted to do. Ever since then I have been doing stuff with kids ever since. I love getting to know all their different personalities and watching them grow. I love dancing with them, working out, celebrating holidays and doing crafts. How can you not love working with kids? Yes they scream and cry, but they also make you laugh.

Jordan

Greeley Team Leader


Credentials

CPR/FA Certified

A little background on myself, being a native to Colorado I am appreciative and blessed to live in the beautiful state of Colorado. Nothing is better than a Colorado sunset on a cool night. Living where I do, I developed a love for photography and enjoy taking advantage of the natural beauty my state has to offer. On days off though I do love spending time with my family and doing fun activities together. Something not everyone knows is that I have 5 dogs in my household. I know...crazy, right! But I have had a love for animals since I was young and just can’t help but open my home and heart to every animal I can. Having the heart that I do is also why I believe VASA is the place I am meant to be at. I have developed a passion for my work I do and for VASA itself. I have worked at VASA for over a year now and couldn’t be happier. I love my VASA family and I have become close to the families and kids. When I was asked why I VASA, my KidCare families and kids are why I do what I do. I have a saying that when someone brings their child to our KidCare, they gain another aunt. The kids are like my nieces and my nephews that I love dearly.

I always have had a passion for teaching children. I've worked with children for over 15 years. Starting in High School, where we ran a preschool. As well as different programs in helping children learn to read & developing other skills that are essential in life. (1st, 2nd, 4th, & 5th graders.) I love kids! And when I came to this company, I felt I was where I was supposed to be. Now, being here for almost a decade, I have grown to love what I do even more. I adore the people I work with, the members I get to interact with everyday and all the wonderful kiddos I get to play with and inspire through FUN PLAY & HAPPY Fitness! I am a mother of two beautiful young children, that tag along with me everyday. I have watched may kids grow through out the years in our KidCare. I can't believe mine get to do the same experience. I try every day to create a safe & happy environment for all the kids to come and enjoy, while their parents workout, worry-free. From crafts to games, learning different skills, languages, and ASL!!! To interactive KidFit, obstacle courses, dance parties, and yoga & meditation! (...And tons more!) I want your kids to beg you to come! Then I know we've done our job!

South Jordan Team Leader

I absolutely love working with kids! I am very passionate about my work and strive to be the best example for the children in my care. Working in the KidCare is so much more than a job to me. I have invested so much time and effort into building relationships with my members and mini-members. Having the opportunity to help uplift my community has not only made a difference in their lives but also my own. Being a mother myself, I truly understand how important it is to be confident in the people who care for my child and therefore it is my goal to provide that same quality care and a positive environment that I would want. I work to provide that kind of environment by getting the children involved in crafts, KidFit, story time, and much more!
