Our Pre-School/After-School Director

My name is Nikki Brauer, I’m the Shining Stars Preschool and Afterschool Director. We began our preschool program two years ago and our afterschool program began in August of 2011. I have attended Harper Chapel most of my life. I live in Osage Beach with my husband, Chad, and our 3 children.

I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Missouri. I taught Kindergarten in the Camdenton School District for two years before becoming a stay at home mom for several years. I worked at a local preschool before starting Shining Stars. I LOVE working with children and am thrilled to be a part of two vital programs in our church and for our community.
