Director - Miss Kristen

Welcome to Lil’ Gems Preschool - we are very excited to have your child join our programs!

My passion has always been to work with children.

To prepare for this, I obtained a Psychology degree from Seattle University and a Master’s Degree in School Counseling. My experience includes both an internship and a substitute position with Lake Washington School District and employment as a nanny of two curious and fun loving boys, ages 2 & 5.

When the opportunity arose to open a preschool, I knew this was meant to be.

My corporate world experience with T-Mobile provides a business perspective to ensure we focus on good customer service to parents and quality programming and teaching for children.

Our family - my husband, Chris, daughter, Hanna, and our playful Australian Shepherd, Dax - call  Sammamish our home - less than 5 miles from our school location.  My "free" time is spent enjoying family and friends, watching football (Go Hawks!), reading and trips to the park.

I’m looking forward to an exciting new school year and to meeting all of our Preschool families!
