Title: Site Director
Phone: (317) 607-2294

Hello! My name is Elizabeth Brehob. I started with the YMCA as a Camp Counselor in 2014 before I started college. I loved it so much I never left! I started with the Before & After School program at Rosa Parks in 2015, and I’ve been here ever since. I’ve been the Site Director since 2016, and I’ve brought something new each and every year. In my spare time, I like to get back to nature by hiking or canoeing. During colder months, I like to keep warm by drinking coffee and snuggling up with a warm blanket and good book.

Phone: (317) 607-2337

Hello, my name is Amanda Barton. I graduated from University of Indianapolis with a Bachelor’s Degree in Community Health Education. My journey working with children started when I was 10 years old babysitting in my hometown. Some fun facts about myself are that I have an identical twin sister, I enjoy playing and watching softball/baseball (go Cubs!), and I enjoy crafting. I started working at the YMCA in 2016 as a Wellness Coach in the Fitness Center. I became a Site Director for Beech Grove Schools in 2018. I enjoy working with kids because they bring lots of laughs to site and something new to discover every
