Director of Operations
Jennifer Mahan has been part of the KapKa community for four years, both as a parent and a member of the KapKa board throughout that time. She also served as the school office manager before moving into her current role of administrator.
Prior to becoming a parent, Jennifer spent more than a decade in personnel management, administrative and business operations, and account and client services. After enrolling her daughter in a co-operative preschool eight years ago, she became closely involved in the leadership and operations of her children’s schools, leading her to discover her passion and excitement for progressive education and school administration. At KapKa, she has developed strong working relationships within the school community, and finds interacting with students, teachers and parents to be a deeply fulfilling experience.
Jennifer loves living in Seattle, and though she is very much a city person, she is happiest when spending time enjoying nature with her wife, Liz, and their two children, who are current KapKa students.
