Meet our Staff
Hi my name is Kimberly. I am Filipino but was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama. I can both speak Tagalog and English fluently. I have two brothers, which makes me the second child and only girl. I have 2 nieces and 2 nephews whom I adore. I love them just like my own. I love working with kids I think they have the utmost energy. In my free time, I like to go shopping, do outdoor activities, cook, be with my family, travel, and spend time with my german shepherd dog, Zeus. Becoming apart of LPCD family, I hope to provide children their needs and care. For me, they are our #1 priority. I also want to further my career and be a dental hygienist someday.

Hi my name is Leah! I was born in New Haven, CT but moved to Birmingham my 4th grade year. I played basketball in middle school, high school, and a little in college. I have a little brother who followed in my footsteps and I couldn’t be happier. I love watching TikToks, cooking, going to concerts, hanging out with my friends, and tanning. I’m not a huge fan of winter or fall because it’s too cold! My parents were foster parents when I was a kid so I’ve grown up with kids from all walks of life. I absolutely love children so I felt like LPCD is perfect for me.
