Now, she will play a key role in helping Promise advance its mission.
Baatz recently assumed the position of executive assistant at Promise.
“I feel a genuine warmth and passionate spirit of all striving toward a common goal of bringing out the best in people,” she said.
Baatz grew up in Hull and graduated from Boyden-Hull High School in 1999. She earned a double-major in early childhood and elementary education from the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls in 2003.
She then served as the director and preschool teacher at Tots on Ten child-care center in Paullina for a year and worked as a scheduler and child-care assistant at Early Childhood Center in Sioux Center for 10 years. For the past three years, she served as the executive assistant and business office manager at Fieldcrest Assisted Living in Sheldon.
Baatz now moves into a similar role at Promise. She thinks her experience and desire to learn will make her a good fit.
“I truly hope in my position I can offer a helping hand when needed,” she said. “I enjoy keeping busy and being a support system to others. A teamwork atmosphere where it feels more like family than a job is what I desire.”
