She later became the director of a local preschool for some years until she became a mother herself. While raising her own children she co-owned and was the program director for a children’s enrichment company, as well as taught dance and drama to young children. She has been very involved in children’s events around the local area for many years and loves to be a “stepping stone” to a great future for the children that she is blessed to work with.
Currently, Mandi has been enjoying her time as a stay-at-home mom for the last seven years. In addition to her “mom” duties, she has worked as a nanny for a local family, volunteered as the Head Coach and Vice President for the Corbett Cheer Club (grades K-8), helped in her children’s classrooms’ in the Corbett School District, organized a playgroup with a local library, as well as volunteered in the nursery and with the children’s ministry of her family’s church. Education and a deep love for Christ have always been an important part of her life, and that of her family’s. Mandi realizes that the curiosity and sense of discovery for the preschool age child, in a setting like SHINE, fosters growth, compassion, and a love for Christ above all else. She feels blessed to be able to collaborate with Teacher Tina, and is excited to see how Christ weaves His way into our hearts!
