Meet the Child Care Council Staff

Introducing Bobbie D.
Robin @ Kids Matter
I am happy to introduce you to Bobbie.  She is an outgoing, friendly, and happy go lucky person.  I have never seen Bobbie without a smile on her face.  She is originally from Hardinsburg, Kentucky, but moved to the Lexington area to live for several years.  It was during that time that she came to work for the CCC as a billing specialist.    Last year she returned to live in a little town outside of Hardinsburg.  Bobbie loves small town life and is happy to be close to her roots.  She is currently working as an Administrative Assistant in the Elizabethtown CCC office.   Bobbie said, “My dad is the most influential person in my life.  He drilled right and wrong into me and my two sisters.  Everything I learned, I learned from him.”  One of her fondest childhood memories is of playing outside in the rain in an old time metal wash tub.  Bobbie’s teen idol was Elvis Presley.  Her favorite Elvis movie is, “Kissing Cousins”.  She recalled watching it in the back of a pickup truck at a drive-in movie theater.  She still loves him to this day…movies, music, everything… 
Bobbie’s first job was as a teacher’s aide in a kindergarten classroom.  However, most of her life was spent running a sporting goods store.  She really enjoyed that because of working with kids of all ages who were involved in sports.  After selling the store, she came to Lexington in 2006 and took the job working for the CCC. 
Family is very important to Bobbie.  She stated, “Family means everything; I couldn’t live without them…well, I could, but I wouldn’t want to.”  She has two grown sons.  Each of her sons is married and has a son and a daughter.  In Bobbie’s present location she is about halfway between them, so she can easily visit each of their families.  When asked what she is most proud of in her life, she replied, “…raising my two sons to be wonderful grown men and fathers.”
Bobbie said that she loves everyone at the CCC, and wanted to give a shout out to her former Lexington co-workers…she misses you!    She said, “The CCC is an excellent place to work and we do excellent work for families and children.”  Where does Bobbie hope to be 5-10 years from now?  “… retired on the beach in Florida!”  Sounds good….I think I could handle that too, what about you?
