Stephanie A.

Director

My name is Stephanie and I am the Director of AppleTree – Monroe Avenue. I grew up in Grand Rapids and began working for AppleTree as a Lead Teacher in 2006. I enjoyed the Early Childhood field so much that I changed majors from Elementary Education to Child Development. After I graduated from GRCC and Western Michigan University, I moved into an administrative role as the Director at AppleTree – Rockford location before having the opportunity to return to AppleTree – Monroe where my son Callen now attends. When I am not at AppleTree, I enjoy spending as much time as possible with my family, being outdoors, exploring Michigan, reading, and teaching myself new things. Please let me know if you have any questions about our programming.”
