Hi, I’m Miss Angie, and I’m thrilled to welcome you to Miss Angie’s Place. As the proud mother of four incredible daughters—Jade, Ruby, Ivory, and Pearl (our angel in heaven)—I decided to take a bold leap of faith after the COVID lockdown, leaving behind my career in education to pursue a long-held dream.

At the heart of Miss Angie’s Place is the vision to create a welcoming and inclusive community center that unites people of all ages and walks of life. Our space is dedicated to nurturing creativity, getting kids outdoors, promoting well-being, and fostering a stronger, more connected community through fun, engaging classes and events centered around four key pillars: Art, Nature, Community and Well-Being.

Bringing my extensive background as an educator and coach into play, my heartfelt goal is for Miss Angie’s Place to be more than a physical space — I want to create a safe haven where participants can have fun and feel a sense of belonging. I hope Miss Angie’s Place becomes a special and cherished space for you.

Pearl’s Story

Our sweet baby Pearl was born Dec 11, 2009 and passed away Jan 10, 2010. She was here for a short time but impacted many. This is her story…

At Miss Angie’s Place, we embrace four pillars:

I believe we’re all artists created in the image of a creative God. Our classes offer a safe and encouraging space where you can discover or grow your artistic talents. We nurture self-expression, foster creativity, and celebrate your accomplishments as you unleash your inner artist.

My extensive outdoor experiences as a child had such a positive impact on me (thanks, Mom and Dad!). I strive to bring that same a sense of adventure and awe to our nature programs, letting children explore our area’s incredible parks, stomp in the mud, and have a blast while learning about and connecting with our amazing natural world.

Education is the heart of our existence.
Our classes and events create opportunities to connect, share, and grow together. We believe that a strong community is built on mutual support and respect. Together, we thrive!

Miss Angie’s Place offers a variety of well-being classes to promote holistic health and personal growth. Our classes let you explore various aspects of well-being, including physical fitness, mental health, and emotional balance.
