Jacqueline Cushman, Executive Administrator, Motion Evolution program, Collaborative Relationships
Greetings! I received both my bachelor's (journalism) and master's degree (education) from Indiana University (IU) in Bloomington, Indiana, where I still live. Most of my professional experience relates to general management. I managed a gymnastics school for 5 years, a music manufacturing company for 2 years, and have been working in various aspects of management for IU for 5 years. This experience has allowed me to have my hand is virtually all aspects of small business administration. I also love to work with kids. I have taught dance and/or gymnastics for 10+ years and enjoy my volunteer position with Big Brothers, Big Sisters. In the fall of 2012, I finally took a big step toward achieving a personal dream of mine: starting my own business. I incorporated Kids in Bloom, a provider of movement classes and curriculum for preschoolers, specifically designed to stimulate cognitive development in young children. In April 2013, in keeping with my ultimate goal to be an innovator and a leader in the field of education, I elected to combine resources with the Motion Evolution team. I'm am thrilled to be here!
