Hello! My name is Diana Sopko and I am the new Director. I reside in Hilliard with my husband, Mike of 22 years. I have 4 children ages 19, 17, 15 and 12. We are part of the Hilliard Darby school district.
I have a BS in Early Childhood Education from Ohio University. After graduating from OU I was a Director of a daycare in Cleveland for 7 years. I was fortunate enough to start the center from the ground up and develop an age appropriate curriculum while meeting high quality standards. The center is still thriving today.
After 7 years of Directing I chose to stay home and raise my 4 young children. While home I still stayed engaged by volunteering in the classrooms, PTO, home child care, crossing guard and most recently the President of the Hilliard Darby Gridiron Club. I also did part time jobs that included networking, marketing and sales. I recently was an administrative assistant and staffing coordinator for Cameron Mitchell Premier Events. I enjoyed working for such a high quality restaurant chain and truly enjoyed supporting on memorable events such as weddings and the Memorial Golf Tournament.
Now that I have children at college and in their teenage years, I am excited to get back with the younger generation. I am eager to be part of the AAK family and part of the Powell community. I look forward to meeting all of you and your families.
