Hi, My name is Kristy Kushmaul. I am excited to be apart of our TLE family. I am originally from Miamisburg, Ohio but moved to Columbus to pursue my bachelor's degree from The Ohio State University. I earned my bachelor's degree in Human Development and Family Studies. I went on to earn my master's degree in Business Administration from Indiana Wesleyan University. I have worked in the child care industry for 17 years. I have taught all ages and for the last 11.5 years I have worked in administration. My husband and I have been together for 16 years and have two children, Carsyn and Carter. We also have two fur babies, Apollo & Carmen. I am a die hard Ohio State fan! Go Bucks! I love spending time with my family and shopping. I look forward to getting to know your family and working to create an impactful early education foundation for your child.
