Cristy Zeller

Hello! My name is Cristy Zeller, and I'm thrilled to say this is my 13th year working at Haven Montessori. I grew up in Richmond, Virginia and attended the University of Virginia, graduating with a double major in English and Government in 1994. My husband, Pete and I moved to Flagstaff in 1999 when he joined W.L. Gore out of graduate school as a Product Specialist. I have worked in grant writing and contract development, business management, and bookkeeping over the course of my career. I joined Haven in 2008 first as a parent when my two children, Max and Chloe, joined the primary communities. Shortly after I signed up for what I thought would be a part-time administrative position in exchange for tuition credit. Thirteen years later, I am proud to serve as the Executive Director of this amazing preschool and Charter School.

I enjoy cooking, enjoying the outdoors, reading, writing, traveling, community activism and spending time with my family as our teenagers will allow! I consider myself a lifelong learner, and relish the opportunity to continue to evolve and grow as part of the Haven community.
