Meet Holly, A New Parent Educator

Holly Family Childcare Resources parent educatorTell us about your background.

I have worked in childcare most of my adult life.  I spent many years as a teacher, and wrapped up my career as a center director for a large group childcare center.  I worked with children and families from all backgrounds, and managed an amazing staff of 25-30 teachers.

What did you go to school for?

I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Change and Development from UW-Green Bay (many moons ago!).  I have taken several trainings pertaining to young children and families over the past years.  I also received my Administrator’s Credential from UW-Platteville in 2015.

Do you volunteer at all?

I spend many hours volunteering for my children’s school, Holy Family School.  I am the secretary of the HFS Athletic Booster Club.  We fund all athletic programs at the school and have a lot of fun doing so!  I also spend as much time as I can helping out in other areas at the school; in the classroom, in the lunchroom, on field trips, etc.

What are your hobbies and interests?

My family and I enjoy being outdoors and to get out of town!  We love hiking & kayaking, and in general, exploring new places.  I’m also perfectly content to be lazy and read a good book for hours on end!

Why are you looking forward to working for Family & Childcare Resources of N.E.W.?

I am excited to work for FCRNEW because I am ready for a new professional challenge.  I am looking forward to having a positive impact on our local community!  Everyone here has been so welcoming; what a great group of people!

Tell us a fun fact about you.

I could live off of nachos.  Good nachos of course!

As the outreach and communications coordinator for Family & Childcare Resources of N.E.W., Nicole loves helping kids and is a kid at heart. Between reading books, you'll find her emailing updates and communicating on behalf of the organization.
