Kyrsten Bruce - Managing Director

Kyrsten moved from Fond du Lac, WI in 2021 where she received her BS in Exercise Science with a minor in Psychology from Marian University. Before moving to Seattle she worked at the Fond du Lac YMCA as a wellness coach and youth fitness program instructor where she helped people of all ages learn how to enjoy fitness in a fun and safe way. Kyrsten has been working for STEF since November of 2021 and has enjoyed every minute of it. Creating a safe environment for children to grow and explore new interests is her favorite part of the job. 

Kyrsten started playing tennis at the age of nine and has continued to play throughout her life. Tennis has been an important aspect of Kyrsten’s life because her parents were in the military which meant moving frequently. Tennis is where she found community and learned how to be a good teammate and communicator. She believes that sports have a great impact on children because it helps them build confidence and learn important life skills.

During her free time, she enjoys hiking, being outdoors, and arts and crafts. She is enthusiastic about finding new adventures and learning new things.
