Read about the Director, Laurie Hamilton

Hi, my name is Laurie and I started at the YMCA in February 2017. I previously worked at Pretend City Children’s Museum for four years in a myriad of positions. While at Pretend City, I learned many of the ins and outs of running a non-profit and greatly enjoyed being able to use that knowledge to benefit my branch while working directly with kids. I am passionate about helping children receive a high-quality education regardless of race, class, gender, ability, or socioeconomic status (SES). Children from low SES households enter kindergarten with 30 million fewer vocabulary words than their peers from middle and high SES families. Research shows that that gap only widens through time. I believe in doing what it takes to help kids minimize that gap and obtain the best in life. When not hanging around a bunch of kids, you can find me with my nose in a book, hiking, and camping with her family, or performing classical music.
