emily-parham_useEmily Parham, Marketing Coordinator II
Start date: 10/31/2016

Share a bit about your professional background:
My experience in marketing ranges from design work, managing social media pages, digital content creation and implementation, to testing and optimizing landing pages for web leads.

What excites you most about working at KCE?
What excites me the most about working for KCE is how brand aware it is here. I’m also excited about contributing to families finding the right fit for their child’s development through digital marketing.

Tell us a unique fact about yourself:
I hand-letter cards, invitations, and artwork for different events!

tommy-mccullough_useTommy McCullough, Experience Producer
Start date: 10/31/2016

Share a bit about your professional background:
I have a formal education background in Broadcast Journalism, however my love for all things technology led me into a career rooted at the intersection of people and tooling. As an operations guy at heart, I love utilizing technology to solve complex people/ culture problems. Before joining KCE, I was with WebMD where I focused on unifying the three areas of employee experience (culture, technology, and physical space) to elevate our employee engagement and ultimately drive the customer experience.

What excites you most about working at KCE?
I’m excited to take my previous experience and use it in an entirely different industry complete with its own unique challenges and opportunities. At WebMD I was a lone “Experience wolf” so I’m enthused to be a part of this incredible team and ready to take on some of these Experience opportunities!

Tell us a unique fact about yourself:
Fresh out of high school, I joined an internship that gave me the opportunity to live/ travel on AC/DC’s former tour bus for 42 weeks. As a result, I can now say that I’ve been to 49 out of 50 states (Alaska in 2017, anyone?).

carrie-joyce_useCarrie Joyce, Payroll Supervisor
Start date: 11/7/2016

Share a bit about your professional background:
I started my career at AT&T in Tennessee. In 2011, my family and I relocated to Oregon. At that point, I took a Customer Service Supervisor position with the Netflix call center in Hillsboro. In 2015, I moved into an analyst/ process improvement role at Comcast as a West Division Operation Specialist.

What excites you most about working at KCE?
It’s exciting to be able to get behind every value that the company has. Along with that, I’m looking forward to taking my diverse background and helping KinderCare Education succeed.

Tell us a unique fact about yourself:
I have an unintentional Disney family. We loved the name Jasmine before we had kids, so we named our first daughter Jasmine. A couple of weeks after she was born, we lost my mother-in-law to cancer. My husband asked me if we could name our next daughter after his mom “Cindy” – her real name was Cinderella. I said yes, and five years later we had Cinderella, but she goes by Ella. Five years after that, we had another girl and we had to decide to stick to the Disney theme or change it up. After going back and forth for nine months, we named our daughter Danica instead. Now that my youngest is in first grade, she tells everyone her Dad and I have two princesses and a race car driver (she’s referring to Danica Patrick, the NASCAR driver – no, we did not name her after the driver!).
