Center Manager

Miss Colleen – Office Manager

Miss Colleen wears many hats as the first person that students, parents and visitors meet as they enter the center. No matter the “hat,” from keeping records and answering the phone to comforting children who don’t feel well while they wait for their parents, Miss Colleen always wears a smile.

“Kids keep you young,” she says. After more than twenty-plus years at the center, she still enjoys and admires the artistic, creative, caring people who are attracted to HSELC. Her tenure gives her a special perspective: “I now see the children of children who went here years ago,” she says, “and that’s always a treat.” Her two grown children still live locally and enjoy time with Miss Colleen and her husband Parker.

If Miss Colleen weren’t so busy at the center, she’d be playing golf—“every day if I could,” she says. Her goal, though, is to one day be a Guardian ad Litem. Meanwhile, she says, HSELC continues to be a very special place for her. Miss Colleen’s  daughter is a graduate of the center and is still friends with the children from her class.
