BATESVILLE, IN – The YMCA of Southeast Indiana is pleased to announce that Mindy Freese has been appointed Youth Program Coordinator. “I am delighted that Mindy is joining our Y team,” says Jenny Salyer, Director of Program Services. “Her vast experience and knowledge make her very well suited for this position. Mindy will lead our Ninja Kids and manage the gymnastics program. She will also support our Wellness Department with our upcoming youth basketball program sessions. She will be a great asset in delivering programs that encourage children to feel valued as individuals and help them succeed, build relationships and feel a sense of belonging.
Freese shared the journey that led her to join Team Y. “I am a blessed wife and mother of two wonderful children. I grew up in Brookville, Indiana, and moved to Batesville while studying.
I obtained my Associate Degree in Applied Science from the University of Indianapolis, Krannert School of Physical Therapy in 2009. During my career as a physiotherapist assistant, I have
gained a wealth of knowledge and experience helping people of all ages. I really enjoy working with pediatrics, watching them grow and achieve lofty goals. I left a pediatric setting as a
director of rehabilitation to pursue a career that would capitalize on my passion for supporting young people and families as well as my solid experience in health and well-being.
“My main passion is spending free time with my family outdoors on our beautiful property in Batesville or going on an adventure traveling with our motorhome. Our family actively
supports our community in many ways. My husband and I run our own small business, our son is in the Boy Scouts and our daughter plays the piano and takes dance lessons.
The YMCA of Southeast Indiana is currently registering youth for its next program session which begins Monday, September 20. Youth programs include Ninja Kids, gymnastics, swimming lessons,
and KidFit. For more information, visit their website at www.siycma.org.
