We are so excited to have you join us and can't wait to meet you!
Brittany and Katy
Co-Founders of The Bunny Hive
Brittany combines her love of community, events, and child development with her background in business and marketing to work on all things The Bunny Hive. Prior to The Bunny Hive, she worked at Harvard Business School and The University of Virginia Darden School of Business. She hopes to blend both her professional background and personal experience of motherhood to create a truly special, safe, and whimsical space for parents and children.
The inception of The Bunny Hive goes back to when Brittany moved to Atlanta from Boston with her husband, Mark, and then 2-month old son, Jack. She was looking for a space to feel at home in her new city as she floated around town, dropping into different baby offerings here and there, but there wasn’t anything that felt quite right. As she worked to make friends for herself and Jack, she missed the community atmosphere she had experienced at boutique fitness studios before having a baby and now that she was a mom, she felt like it was impossible to fully dive into a fitness studio community any time soon. She wished there was a place that blended her desire to spend time with baby and expose him to engaging activities, and also allowed her meet other parents in the area and develop that tight-knit community she missed. So the idea of The Bunny Hive was born with the help of one of her dearest friends, Katy.
Brittany and Mark have two little boys, Jack (3) and Harry (1), and are expecting a baby girl in May 2022. Brittany loves iced coffee, tacos, and embracing all things Boy Mom.
Katy is passionate about early childhood education, relationship building, and development. Prior to The Bunny Hive, she held a variety of roles in the education and non-profit industries including: the founding executive director of a chapter of a youth development organization called The First Tee, an early education teacher, a community affairs manager at an international school in Shanghai, and an application reader for Princeton University.
Katy found herself in a situation similar to Brittany when she moved away from New York City with a six month old and was looking to create a network of support with fellow young families. With a background in youth development and early childhood education, Katy knew the importance of exposing her son, John, to new environments and social activities, but struggled to find a variety of classes that met both of their needs in terms of community, convenience, and developmental readiness. Together she and Brittany began dreaming of a place that met these needs and together created the concept of The Bunny Hive.
Katy and her husband, Will, have a four-year-old named John, and a one-year-old named Eleanor. They are expecting another little girl June 2022. Katy loves traveling, cooking with Will, running marathons, and eating any and all seafood.
Chelsea has been with The Bunny Hive since day one and is a pillar in our community. She graduated from Georgia College & State University with a degree in English and Creative Writing. She has an extensive background in childcare and has performed in several children’s productions around the world.
Ansley graduated from Columbus State University with a degree in Acting, but she has always been passionate about education and the effect empathetic teachers can have on our children. Ansley also works as behavioral support for people with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Caroline graduated from Columbus State University with a BA in Theatre. She focused in Directing for Children’s Theatre and has always been passionate about arts education. Caroline also has an extensive background in childcare and event management.
Jordan is currently obtaining her Masters of Education in School Counseling from Georgia State University. She hopes to focus on social-emotional learning in elementary school-age children and become a Registered Play Therapist.
Alexis has an extensive background in event planning with an emphasis on weddings and large scale events. She is mama to Lyla and is expecting her second baby girl this summer.
Jasper is highly trained at making even the quietest little ones come out of their shells during class. He's quick to lend a helping hand during bubbles, dance parties, and infant massage alike, always with a kind smile on his face.
10, and counting!
