Chris invested in her love for children in 1987 as an in-home child care provider. Following 10 years of loving and educating children, an opportunity to work in a related environment with an emphasis on finance and accounting presented itself. For the next 18 years, Chris worked in Marriottsville, MD, as a bookkeeper and then Business Office Manager for a private school and church. One of her greatest joys were the 18 years of
mentoring the students through coaching the ladies junior varsity and varsity volleyball teams and participating on the leadership teams for six student based mission trips to Mexico and Guatemala. For the past 10 years, Chris is employed at Greenwood Towing and Driveaway, in Baltimore City, as their Controller and HR Manager. She is active in reviewing towing legislation and participates in City Tow Board meetings.
Although accounting and finance are what spins Chris' wheels, loving children and seeing them succeed is what warms her heart.

Erin Moxley is the owner and operator of Mrs. Erin's Child Care. I love my chosen profession and believe that there is no greater feeling than knowing that you aided in the learning and growth of a child. What I enjoy most is seeing the expression of a child who has just discovered something new and wonderful for the first time. There is nothing better than when they are able to perform a new skill without assistance for the first time.
I have been caring for children for over 20 years; first caring for my own children, then neighbors children and other children in the community. I strive to improve the quality of the services I provide to my clients as a Professional Early Educator by staying up to date on the new Childcare laws and regulations, advocating for early childhood education, and learning new, exciting, and stimulating teaching methods and activities.
