EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, METROKIDS - CHARICE DEEGAN

Charice Deegan began her role as the Executive Director of MetroKids in the summer of 2010.

Charice has always had a passion for working with children. Before MetroKids, she was Principal at Minnehaha Academy, South Campus (Minneapolis) and felt that God was preparing her for a role working with urban, early childhood education. She believes that every child deserves a foundation of strong childhood education.

Charice is married to Sean and they have two children, Charlotte and Christopher. Their children are both in college so Sean and Charice are learning what is is like to be "empty nesters." In her spare time, Charice enjoys reading, traveling and spending time with her family. Her favorite activity is Sunday afternoon Scrabble games with Sean.
