The Newtown Athletic Club (NAC) is home to an evolving Youth Programs department, engaging kids of all ages with a variety of unique programming and classes. This past month, Camp NAC Director Amanda Brown and Kids Club Director Jessie Westfall have been invited to join the Youth Programs team as the new directors. This role encompasses all youth programs, aquatics, and the indoor and outdoor pools.
Throughout their time at the NAC, both Amanda and Jessie have proved to be invaluable assets due to their strong drive to succeed and commitment to the success of the club. Their shared desire to guarantee an exceptional experience for each and every member of the NAC is the reason they have been chosen as the new directors for the Youth Programs department.
Amanda began her career at the NAC as a gymnastics coach eight years ago. Through her determination and drive, Amanda was able to create opportunities to grow and expand her responsibilities. With increased experience and skills Amanda earned various leadership positions, including overseeing the gymnastics program, becoming head party host, and eventually becoming the director of Camp NAC.
Jessie Westfall has been part of the NAC in the Kids Club team for almost 8 years culminating in 3 years as the Director. Many of you may already know her as Ms. Jessie. She truly loves every part of her job and is very excited to have the opportunity to grow and expand the NAC Youth Programs. Jessie’s past work experiences include working as a Preschool Teacher, Art Teacher, Banquet Manager and a Mom. She is married with three wonderful children ages 13, 7 & 4. She also enjoys decorating anything and everything possible.
“After working with kids since starting out at the NAC, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to apply the skills I have learned throughout my career to improving and growing our youth programs,” stated Amanda regarding her new position. “Jessie and I are going to be working hard to make any necessary improvements so each and every child has a positive experience in these programs.”
