She received her Bachelor’s of Liberal Arts from the University of Puget Sound, with a focus in psychology, and her Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology and her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Pacific University of Oregon.

Kathie Markham Kyle

Kathie moved to Long Beach in 1970 with her parents and fell in love with the community. From 1981-1996 she taught preschool before obtaining her Bachelors degree from Evergreen State College.

After college she returned to the Peninsula to pursue her passions: youth education and community enrichment. She worked at Head Start, Tlohon-nipts Alternative High School, and Peninsula Learns. In 2003, Kathie moved to Milwaukie, Oregon with her husband and started Green Acres Day Camp which she considers to be one of her life's greatest accomplishments.

After she retired, she returned to the place she's called home for so long and began working as an emergency substitute at Ocean Beach School District and Boys & Girls Club. She also goes by "Sonshine" the Clown on the weekends and at special events!

 

Francisco Galvin

Francisco was born and raised on the Peninsula and graduated from Ilwaco High School in 2011. After high school he attended Clatsop Community College in Astoria and received an Associate of Science Degree.

From there, he decided that working with children peaked his interest. He began coaching youth soccer and started working for Ocean Beach School District as a substitute as well as at Boys & Girls Club.

"I feel truly grateful anytime a club member reaches out to me because it gives me the opportunity to have a positive influence on them. I enjoy the connections that are made by working with each club member."

In the future, Francisco intends on returning to college to become an Elementary Education Teacher.

 

Rachel Rule

Rachel grew up in Washington and received a Bachelor of Science in Biology at Eastern Washington University in 2012. In 2014, she obtained a professional certificate in Natural Science Illustration at the University of Washington. She began working as the Program Coordinator at Boys & Girls Club in September, 2018.
