E-Learning Instructional Coordinator
Kimberlee is a STARS trainer through Washington DCYF MERIT.
Kimberlee has worked as a full time E-Learning Instructional Coordinator with Successful Solutions Training in Child Development since 2016. Initially starting as a student support position, Kimberlee's hard work and education has allowed her to become one of our two state-approved trainers! Kimberlee has a Master of Science Degree in Higher Education from Walden University. She also graduated from Eastern Washington University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Developmental Psychology and a minor in Psychology.
Prior to joining our team, Kimberlee's experience includes working in a childcare center for children, both with and without disabilities, as an in-home traveling ABA Therapist, and a center-based Behavior Technician. Kimberlee's passion for working with children is due to the rewarding moments when she knows that she's made a difference in a child's life. "Receiving thanks and appreciation from families is one of the greatest feelings! I am so happy to be able to now teach teacher's how to work with diverse individuals and to help further the early childhood education field." Kimberlee firmly believes that every child should have access to an inclusive and supportive environment and it is our job as educators to provide that for them.
Kimberlee's daily motivation comes from working with such an amazing group of people! "I honestly never could have dreamed of having such supportive, friendly, and strong individuals as my co-workers. Morale is so important at work, and I feel so lucky to have employers that understand this and make me feel appreciated. Plus, how many people can say they have delicious lunches prepared for them every day, or get to see cute babies and dogs at work?? I truly feel that the work we are doing is important! This, along with the combined efforts from our other trainer Brittney, keeps me feeling pretty darn motivated!"

E-Learning Curriculum Specialist and Instructor
Brittney is a STARS trainer through Washington DCYF MERIT.
Do you ever wonder who it is that makes the magic happen behind the pages? Brittney is one of our two full-time trainers who vigorously works to provide our students with the most updated curriculum on our training courses. She constantly strives to obtain new state approvals and maintain our current state approval statuses – this means that she is working hard to ensure that our courses can be used to meet annual training requirements for your state!
Brittney is typically the one to answer any licensing or classroom specific questions – with an extensive background working with children in a licensed childcare and the formal education to back it, she has the hands-on knowledge of what it takes to work in an Early Learning classroom!
Brittney is persistent with continuing her formal education; with two Bachelor Degrees behind her name (Bachelors in ECE from Rasmussen College and a Bachelors in Creative Writing from Eastern Washington University and is currently working on a Master’s in Early Childhood Education from Walden University), she’s not joking when her response to the question, “Why are you always in school?” is because she wants as many letters behind her name! “Honestly, my main goal for continuing my education is because I want to know all I can about Early Childhood Education, and I want to be able to help as many people as possible to succeed! I love to help people and I feel that I can do that every day when I come to work. The people I work with at Successful Solutions make a fantastic team, which makes it a great place to work!”
As a full-time staff member, Brittney’s favorite project at Successful Solutions is creating new training courses and obtaining new state approvals. She understands the importance in providing our students with courses that they can use to meet their state training requirements, regardless of how difficult or time-consuming the process may be. It is our ultimate goal at Successful Solutions to be approved in as many states as possible so that all our students, whether they be new, current, or “just looking,” can utilize our 100% online courses to meet their state training requirements!
