Jodi and Carolyn - Session Leader

Hello Hartbeepers!

We are Jodi and Carolyn, and together we run Hartbeeps for this area.

Jodi

I am a mummy to two girls, Islay and Poppy and they are the reason I began on my Hartbeeps journey. They love Hartbeeps and still enjoy helping behind the scenes and feeling a part of the team. I feel so lucky to be meeting wonderful parents and children, creating happy memories and scattering magic sprinkles! It really is the best job in the world.

My background is in dance, I studied this at university and went on to work with people who had physical disabilities. Once I had my first daughter I became a childminder, a job I loved and did for four years. Then I discovered Hartbeeps and I can honestly say it was the most captivating, whimsical class that I have ever experienced with my children.

Hartbeeps has so many benefits for babies and children and is delivered with passion and care. I hope you will love it as much as I do. I very much look forward to meeting you all soon!

Carolyn

I am Carolyn and I am extremely excited to co-own and run Hartbeeps with Jodi in this area.

My days with Hartbeeps started when I attended a class with my daughter Erin. She was only a few weeks old and we swiftly signed up for all the terms we could squeeze in during my maternity leave! We just loved it. The sessions were magical, engaging and so much fun. I found new ways to play at home and I met other parents who are now absolutely friends for life.

In my pre Hartbeeps life I worked in the Motor trade; would you believe it. Since joining the Hartbeeps team I have never looked back. Somethings are just meant to be.

It is an honour to be a part of Hartbeeps. I get to meet so many incredible babies and their families and provide a place where they can just be together, enjoy a magical journey of development and fun and together make glorious memories.

I cannot wait to meet you all and bring our magic sprinkles into your lives.

Magic Sprinkles,

Jodi and Carolyn

Jessie Hollett -  Imaginator for Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield

Hello,

I'm Jessie, Mummy of Isaac 7 and Austin 4 and your crazy Imaginator for Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield. Get ready to come on a musical adventure with me and your little one. Meet others and make memories you and your little one will have for a lifetime.

I've always loved singing, dancing and performing, as child and young adult but then I moved to London to follow a different career path. After many years in the corporate world, I had my first son Isaac and by chance found Hartbeeps. We discovered Hartbeeps when visiting my parents up north and instantly feel in love. But alas there was no Hartbeeps in Welwyn Garden City. For some reason I didn't look much further afield, as a new mum I wasn't sure I wanted to drive to St Albans for a class. Silly I know as I wouldn't think twice about it now, but I was quite nervous with things like that. I went back to work and juggled being a new mum and holding down a 9-5 job.
I then had my second son Austin and felt that we both needed Hartbeeps in our life so after contacting the franchise owner and going through the training, Hartbeeps Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield was born. I was able to take Austin to classes every week and he loved it. I could see how the sessions helped him, from the repetition of the beginnings and endings meaning he felt safe and calm to him being able to count to 10 by the time he was 2.
I have been running sessions in WGC since February 2018 and I love it, I wouldn't change it for the world, it really is my dream job.
Covid meant we have had to take a break, but we are back stronger than ever, and we have a bigger and better team than ever before.
I get to be creative every day, see grownups bond with their little ones, create memories and just be silly, as well as being at home when my boys are back from school.
In this crazy stressful world where at times it can feel like it's getting on top of us, come and take time out with me and your little one. Let's shake off all are adult norms and just simply be and play with our little ones whilst working on their development without them or you even realising it.
I can't wait to meet you and your little one and go on some wonderful adventures together.

Amy Cook -  Imaginator for Luton, Henlow and Stotfold Greenacre Centre

Hi I'm Amy,
I'm a single Mummy to a lovely little boy.

In my pre Mummy life I was a Musical Theatre performer in the UK and around the world. I have also worked a lot in TV and Film. I now teach Performing arts to children locally for various companies.

Eddie and I first came to Hartbeeps when he was 12 weeks old, and we attended every week until he started school!
Hartbeeps holds a special place in our hearts. It gave us a magical world to explore, somewhere to have fun and forget about everything but just us two. It never failed to make us both smile.

Which I why I'm thrilled to now be spreading the magic sprinkles that we felt to other families as an Imaginator.

I hope myself and Hartbeeps gives you as many fun, fuzzy and magical moments to remember as it gave to Eddie and I.

I am so excited to be able to share the Hartbeeps classes with you in Cheshunt, Northaw and Potters Bar.

I have 3 beautiful children, Jack, Sam and Mille and a wonderful husband Paul.

I first took Jack to Hartbeeps when he was a toddler and have loved it ever since. It's been wonderful to see Millie now becoming engaged in Hartbeeps and all 3 of my children have loved the songs, the lights and snuggle time!

I have thought about joining the Hartbeeps family for a long time and after having my daughter, I realised it would be too much to return to my job in the city and now was the perfect opportunity to have a job I loved and one that was able to allow me to spend more time with my family.

I have worked as a singer for years and studied at the BRIT School and I love all music and performing. Hartbeeps is a magical class and I can't wait to share this with you all.

See you soon Hartbeepers!

Love and Magic sprinkles, Gina xx

Zulehka Mitcham -  Imaginator for Harpenden and St Albans

Hello,

My name is Zulehka I run the Harpenden sessions and St Albans on Fridays. I am a mum of 2 very energetic boys, and I have a background in education and performing. I have been a primary school teacher for over 10 years and have also acted in a variety of T.I.E productions for schools.

I started my Hartbeeps journey when I moved to Hertfordshire and started taking classes with my youngest. I quickly fell in love with the classes and new I wanted to get involved. Luckily, I was given the opportunity to join the team in 2019 and began my training. During my training my eldest was able to join me and he soon became a fellow hartbeeper. He even helped me to create content for Hartbeeps@home. I started running classes near the end of 2020 and as they say the rest is history! I love sharing this time with you and your little ones. I loved Hartbeeps as a fellow mum and love it even more as an imaginator.

Magic Sprinkles,

Victoria Serra -  Imaginator for our Hartbeeps Hitchin Hub

Hello, I'm Vicki!

I am fairly new to the Hartbeeps' team, but I already feel right at home. I have been performing in theatre and on screen all over the world for the past 12 years, after graduating from the Guildford School of Acting. When I'm not on the stage, you can find me teaching children and young adults all the tools of performing arts. I have also spent time doing drama therapy with disabled children and came away from that time in my life, certain that every single child is capable of expression and creativity when given the respect and love to do so.

I love beginning my days with the sun rising at Hartbeeps!

Can't wait to meet you all,

Magic Sprinkles, Vicki xx

Andrea Kennedy -  Imaginator for St Albans

Hello!

I am so excited to welcome you all to our sessions on Tuesdays and Wednesdays in St Albans! I have been Imaginating with Hartbeeps since 2011! It has been an amazing and magical journey. Every smile, every squeal of delight, every developmental leap, every memory made between grown up and child has made this more than a job; It is a joy and a pleasure! The dream job I have searched for my whole life. And trust me I have tried a lot of things! From historical interpretation, and strawberry picking, to Improv comedy, singing telegrams and Spa and Health Club Management! I Love how Hartbeeps blends music and creativity into interactive imaginative stories for all of us to enjoy. I may have made a promise as a child that I never wanted to grow up and still ended up having to pay the bills and make food for all the people. But the one thing I hope to never loose, is the ability to play. Because all of us, child and grown up alike, deserve to have that carefree feeling of true happiness.

I look forward to welcoming you all to the amazing, magical and slightly wacky world of Hartbeeps!
