Julie began working for Little Sunshine’s Playhouse in August 2002 while obtaining her CDA (Child Development Associate). Her initial role was within the initial founding Little Sunshine’s Playhouse School location on a teaching team, and later into senior management. There she had the opportunity to learn details about the company’s business operations, educational standards, management-style and eventually company accounting. Julie’s long-term loyalty and commitment to Little Sunshine’s Playhouse, her knowledge and specific skill sets make her an invaluable team member.
Her daily role includes management of tuition collections, QuickBooks support, reporting analysis and general administration. She is a notary in the state of Missouri; as well as an active International Franchise Association member and Certified Franchise Executive of the International Franchise Association’s graduating class of 2015.
Julie and her husband, Michael, reside in Springfield, Missouri with their two children (both Little Sunshine’s Playhouse graduates).
