Kirstine Bowers


Executive Assistant

What did you do prior to IEM Schools?

I worked as a nanny for a family, as well as at a local district's Extended Day program. I tried my hand at waitressing, but only lasted two weeks!

How long have you been with IEM Schools?

Officially since 2010, but I was a temp for nearly 2 years before that.

Where did you grow up?

All over El Dorado County

Where do you live?

Camino, CA. Right in the middle of Apple Hill!

What areas do you serve for IEM Schools?

I am the Executive Assistant to the CEO, Office Manager for the IEM offices in Placerville, and I help the Communications Department with marketing efforts and events for IEM Charter Schools. I love to help wherever help is needed, and really enjoy interacting with our awesome staff, ESs and even parents at events.

What do you think is/are the best thing(s) about IEM Schools?

Parent Choice and the Teachers and Support Staff. IEM has and always will fight for parent choice in education (while being fiscally and ethically responsible!).

What is your dream summer vacation?

Anywhere with a beach. One day I WILL stay in an over-the-water bungalow in the Maldives!

What do you like to do in your free time?

I try to spend as much time outdoors as possible. Walking my dog, hiking, camping, backpacking... just trying to soak up as much nature as possible.

What is something interesting about yourself that many people might not know?

I love to swing dance. I used to go dancing all the time and actually had some jivin' skill! My favorite song to swing to is "Bei Mir Bist du Schoen".
