I started working at Little Sprouts in February of 2012 during my time as a student at UW-Stout. I was drawn to Little Sprouts because of their passion for children and education. I had previously worked in a corporate daycare and preschool setting where it was becoming more evident that it wasn’t as much about the kids as it was about the money. I knew Little Sprouts was committed to the children and families they work with, because they are passionate about what they do!

Shortly after I started working at Sprouts I learned that I was not just an employee, but that I was a part of a team, or I even like to call them “my Little Sprouts family”. I always felt appreciated and encouraged as an employee at Sprouts. I spent two years at Sprouts and I absolutely loved every minute of it! My former coworkers at Sprouts have become some of my dearest friends who I still keep in contact with to this day! Also, I enjoyed how well we got to know the children and families we worked with at Sprouts everyday!

To attest to the kind of people the team at Little Sprouts are, I was diagnosed with Lymphoma after my time at Sprouts had come to an end and my Little Sprouts family was so kind as to hold a benefit in my honor to help with medical expenses, even though I had moved to Virginia Beach, VA. They were able to raise just over $2,000 for my medical expenses! I may be thousands of miles away, but Little Sprouts will always be special to me and a part of my family!
