Krista Lewis

Krista has been in the early childhood education field since 1996 and has a bachelor’s degree in Human Development and Family studies. She has served in many roles throughout her career, from serving as a floater, teacher, cook, lead teacher, assistant director, director, and now regional director. She can do it all! Krista has always had a special place in her heart for children, and she loves being able to make a difference in children’s lives every day.

Krista lives with her husband, son, daughter, and their dog in Thomasville. Krista’s biggest fear has always been flying, but she recently overcame that fear on a trip to Chicago and will fly again with less anxiety! Her favorite childhood book is The Baby-Sitters Club because she likes that it is about friends that will accept each other no matter what. We love having Krista on our team!
