MEET THE ACES STAFF
Cathy Hay - Program Director Cathy has been here since the beginning of ACES eight years ago. Cathy has nearly 40 years of working with children in Bigfork, Dillon and Australia. Her passion lies in helping children experience activities they may otherwise not be exposed to. This is reflected in our ACES acronym - arts, community, education and sports.
RILEY COLEMAN Riley has spent the past 4 summers at ACES and is taking on the role of site supervisor. Riley is your “go to” person when the Big Boss isn’t around. She is learning the ropes around ACES and is a natural with the kids. Riley is our sports and community service expert. Riley has recently graduated from college with a BA in psychology and a minor in sociology and is a Bigfork High School graduate. We are excited to have Riley with us sharing her love for kids!
JENNA Jenna has been part of ACES since the summer of 2018. She is a high school junior that works two days a week. She has a love for kids and enjoys her time at ACES. Jenna is a great asset to our team!
LANNY MILLER This is Lanny’s 4th year at ACES. She has worked with all ages of children and has a love and compassion for the kids. She has a wealth of ideas and can whip up an art or education project in a blink of an eye! Lanny is attending FVCC part-time pursuing her Early Childhood education degree. She loves the outdoor and has a little hippy vibe about her.
CHRISTINA DUFOUR Christina has been with ACES for 5 years! This year Christina will be working full time and is taking on the role of meals supervisor and office assistance. She will also be doing her favorite work, working with the kids. She can manage the office, whip up dinner and take on a group of kids like a rock star! Christina is a graduate of Glacier High School and loves to travel the world and has spent time in New Zealand, Philippines, Vietnam, Singapore and is currently in Thailand. We miss her terribly but will return on October 11.
