Meet Our Director
My name is Ali Knieling. I was born in Kansas, but call Cookeville my home! After graduating from ETSU in 2015, with a Bachelor’s in Exercise Science, I moved back here and was lucky enough to join the Lighthouse family.
I enjoy spending time with my family, anything outdoors and road trips too! I have had the joy of working in childcare as an Assistant Teacher, Lead Teacher for toddlers, and a Pre-K Teacher before becoming the Assistant Director of Lighthouse.
With my 8+ years of childcare experience, I have learned so much, and cannot wait to continue learning and growing with your children!
