Director Krista Poitras
Hi, my name is Krista Poitras. I have a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Child and Adolescent Development as well as my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from Cal State Fullerton. I have been pursuing my passion of working with children, and their families, since I was eighteen years old. I have traveled to China to teach English and American Culture at a Summer Camp, taught Kindergarten and fourth grade, and worked at another afterschool care program before finding my way to the YMCA in 2010.
I have many passions in life; my biggest one is making a difference in the lives of children and their families. It is my desire to support children and their families, so they have an opportunity to grow, develop, and thrive; and to help make their lives a little easier. I feel being the Director of Peterson YMCA is the perfect place for me to accomplish this life goal.
