Balinda Bailey

Northeast District Recruiter

With my education in organizational behavior, I bring 30 years of experience devoted to the growth and development of others. Having spent seven years as a foster parent, I have an intimate understanding of the work that child care providers do to contribute to a better world.

I believe that the best way to predict the future is to create it! I spend my days listening to providers and sharing the resources they need to make an informed decision about how becoming a Rated program will benefit them, and the children and families they serve in their communities.
