Read about the Director, Michelle Phan

I have been with the YMCA for almost 10 years (September 2017). Before the YMCA, I worked in a preschool program while attending the University of CA, Santa Barbara for my bachelors degree. I love my position because I can do everything from working with the children, marketing, budgeting, and making sure everything is running smoothly here at my site. I have developed longtime relationships with my families and staff here at Bergeson.

I am married with 2 kids, Elise and Zaden. We also have 2 dogs, Pink and Lucy. I enjoy reading, dancing, and watching Disney movies with my daughter.

We are looking forward to another fun summer!.” – Bergeson YMCA Parent
