She has four years of experience working with children of all ages, with Parks & Recreation and as an assistant and lead childcare teacher in a private setting. Helping children succeed is what warms her heart. Kids are her passion, and she is very happy to be a part of the All-Star Team! Kenya will be working closely with our nurse and a few students with medical needs.
