Board of Directors
My name is Parker Bryant and my two daughters have been attending GCCCC since 2020 where they have enjoyed meeting new friends and learning new things with an amazing group of teachers and staff. Our family moved to Greene County in 2019 and have loved every minute of it. I currently work at a non-profit that supports facilities specializing in Maternal and Pediatric HIV/AIDS care in Africa. Prior to that, my wife and I met while serving in the US Peace Corps where we worked as teachers, so we appreciate how hard that job can be!
As President of the board, I hope to support the school and staff as they continue to provide a safe and welcoming learning environment.
Jordan Hargrave, Vice President
Hi everyone! My name is Jordan Hargrave, and my son attends GCCCC and my daughter will begin when she's old enough. I am originally from Danville, VA but moved to the area years ago to attend UVA. I decided to stick around and love calling Greene County home. I work for my husband's business, and in my spare time, I enjoy running, hiking, and spending time with my family.
My husband and I are so grateful to have found GCCCC for our son and are pleased with the quality of care and warm and loving environment. We have watched our son grow both socially and academically since starting in 2021. I joined the board because I believe GCCCC is an asset to our community and want to help however I can.
Chelsea "CJ" Shifflett, Secretary
My name is Chelsea "CJ" Shifflett and I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and mother of two. I joined the Board of Directors at Greene County Childcare Center in September 2022, immediately following my daughter's enrollment. I was so impressed with GCCCC's communication and organization at the inquiry phase, and once I took my tour, GCCCC felt like home. I knew I wanted to be a part of this community and give back in any way I could, so the Board provided the perfect opportunity to help with decision-making, policy development, and actioning feedback. I look forward to applying my strengths to the Secretary position to provide accurate concurrent documentation and support onboarding for GCCCC Staff and Board members.
Hello, everyone! My name is Amber Clore, and my daughter has been attending GCCCC since July of 2020. My family and I live in Stanardsville, and we have called Greene County home all of our lives. My husband and I knew we wanted somewhere that could provide quality care while we were unable to, and quickly knew the Center was home for us. While my daughter started part time at the Center, we quickly decided we wanted her to become full time after seeing how much she was growing and developing with the amazing quality of care and dedication the staff offered. I am so excited for this journey working with the other Board members to continue the success and growth of GCCCC.
Chelsea Ryder, Member
Hi! My name is Chelsea Ryder and I am a girl mom x3 (ages 10, 4 and 1.5)! My middle daughter is currently enrolled at GCCCC and will be attending the Pre-K program in the fall. I was raised in Greene and am very excited to be raising my family here as well. I am an Administrative Coordinator for the Cardiology division at the UVA School of Medicine. We have been extremely pleased with the education our daughter has received so far from GCCCC, and we are also very thankful for the genuine care and love that the amazing staff provides to our child. I joined the board to be more hands-on involved in hopefully helping GCCCC continue to grow and succeed for our community!
Amanda Krumpach, Member
My name is Amanda Krumpach and my two children attend GCCCC where they've blossomed in friendships, emotional and social skills, and are growing in knowledge under the care of nurturing teachers and staff. Our family moved to Greene County in 2011 and have enjoyed becoming part of this community that is now our home. I work at a company that specializes in providing learning experiences outside of the classroom and am a former elementary teacher. I appreciate how hard our center works at providing learning and growth opportunities that meet all our children's needs. As a board member, I look forward to working closely with parents and staff to ensure everyone is supported and thriving.
