Maureen (Mo) McGowan, Director
My name is Maureen McGowan and I have been working in the Early Child Field for over 35 years. I began my career as a Kindergarten Teacher. I enjoyed teaching the children foundational academic and social-emotional skills before going off to elementary school. I quickly realized that I also liked the administrative side and took on a position as a Center Director. I have been a Director in Early Childhood since 1997. I have my State of Colorado Large Center Director License and continue to take courses to further my development in Early Childhood.
In my spare time I like to cook and share my talent with family and friends. I enjoy supporting local restaurants and trying new cuisine. I love to take long weekends and go up to Blackhawk or take a trip to Las Vegas. I value my time with my extended family and I am the primary caregiver for my mother. We enjoy spending Sunday evenings preparing a meal and having long conversations.
I cherish the relationships I have built with my teachers and families and the rapport that we have established in the Broomfield community.
Jeannette Larson, Assistant Director
I have been working at Broomfield Cadence Academy for the past two years and I love working with children and their families! Prior to working at Cadence, I have eighteen years of experience in Early Childhood Education. I received my Large Center Director Certification for the State of Colorado in 2006 and completed my Associate of Arts in Early Childhood Education in 2010. I have ten years of experience teaching Infants, Toddlers, Preschoolers, and School-Agers. I have eight years of experience as a Child Care Manager both as an Assistant Director and Director.
My family and I have lived in Broomfield since my husband, Walter, and I were married in 2006. Walter and I have two children. Kimberly is eight and loves to make 3D art projects, read, and ride her bike. Richard is five and loves using his imagination. He wants to be a police officer when he grows up. We enjoy living in Broomfield and spending time in the open space and at the pool. In our spare time we love to fish, camp, and watch movies.
