Ms. Elise B.

Program Director

My name is Elise and I am the Program Director of AppleTree - Kentwood.  I am happily married and have two beautiful children named Bradley and Madison to attend AppleTree.  My family loves to do a lot of outdoor activities and spend time together reading books, camping, swimming and just being together.  I graduated college from Western Michigan University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Early Childhood.  I have been with AppleTree for six years, beginning as a toddler teacher before becoming the Program Director. I love the opportunity to get to meet so many amazing children and their families. Please let me know if you have any questions about what AppleTree can provide your family.”
