Andrea Stogsdill is NCLCCA’s new Executive Director. In this role, she oversees and implements membership activities, conferences, member trainings, and coordinates volunteer activities. Previously, Andrea was owner and operator of Little Engine Daycare, a small center in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. In her free time, she worked with Douglas County Child Care Association, first as Secretary in 2005, then as President from 2008-2010. As President she led meetings, set up networking events among providers, and organized and led the marketing committee for the Association. She later volunteered as State Representative where she brought provider needs to the state level.

 

Prior to working in childcare, Andrea wrote policy profiles for a public health nonprofit, was a contract manager for a state department of health services, and did health policy research and writing. She earned her Master's degree in Public Policy and Administration in 2004 and has a Bachelor’s in Political Science.

 

She lives in Wake Forest with her husband and three kids, ages nine to 14. Together they enjoy trying new foods, hiking, and walking the dog. 

 

Linda Piper is NCLCCA’s new Director of Regulatory Services, focusing primarily on activity with DCDEE and the Child Care Commission, and providing expert guidance to staff and project teams. After serving as Executive Director for 13 years, she is excited to direct her passion specifically to rules and policies impacting child care providers. In her prior life, she was a child care provider and member of NCLCCA's board, so she knows first-hand the benefits of membership in a strong advocacy organization focused exclusively on child care providers.  

For 18 years she was involved, along with her mother, in a child care business that began when she was three year old in two rooms in the back of their home. In 1988 they opened a new facility, followed by a second location in 1991, which was sold in 1996. The original location was eventually expanded to a capacity of 260 children. In April of 2006, they sold the business, and she was then able to focus her full attention on the NCLCCA.   

She is a mother of three children, with the youngest in college at UNC. Together with her very supportive husband, they enjoy hosting foreign exchange students and have several canine pets. She earned her undergraduate degree in Accounting many years ago, but more recently earned a Master’s Degree in Child Development and Family Relations from East Carolina University.

 

Sara Whitley is part of NCLCCA’s executive staff. She has worked with Capitol Hill Management Services, Inc., for almost two years and is our main point of contact for issues related to membership, conference coordination, and website management. She works with clients ranging in size from 200 to 2,000 members, assisting them with membership growth plans, regional and annual meetings, and database and website management. She earned her Bachelor’s in Business Administration in 2013 from James Madison University and is a member of Association Executives of North Carolina. She lives in Raleigh with her dog and enjoys trying new restaurants, traveling, and listening to live music.
