That same year she began teaching preschool children at Little Friends Christian Academy in Yorba Linda, California. In 1992 she married her husband Greg and moved to Newberg, Oregon. She continued working in local preschools until her first child Brittany was born in 1994. When her youngest child Matthew reached preschool age in 2002, Stacy resumed teaching preschool in the Newberg area.
In 2012 she took her 18 years of in early childhood education and struck out on her own opening Jack and Jill Christian Preschool. Stacy has a huge heart for teaching and serving preschool children and their families. One of Stacy’s passions is developing an inclusive family atmosphere that is at the heart of Jack and Jill Christian Preschool.
Teacher Stacy has an extraordinary ability to keep moving forward under any circumstance. One of the verses she leans on comes from Isaiah; “But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31.

In her free time, you can find Jillian cuddling my Golden Retriever Jody, singing on the church worship team, watching old musicals, or thrifting and antique shopping.
