Hello, my name is Chrissy Pownell and I am the Infant/Toddler Specialist for the Child Care Resource Center. I am located in the Morgantown office serving the eight counties of Monongalia, Marion, Wetzel, Tyler, Marshall, Ohio, Brooke, and Hancock.

I am a proud resident of West Virginia where I have lived in a little town called Rivesville for most of my life. I graduated from Fairmont Senior High School and went on to further my education at West Virginia University.  I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Family and Consumer Sciences with an emphasis on Child Development and Family Studies.

I have worked with children of all ages and their families throughout my career. I had the privilege to be a Lead Teacher in both a two year old and three year old classroom, a Pre-School Teacher at a local Head Start, and a Licensed Social Worker for almost eleven years at a local foster care agency.  While working in the foster care system I trained foster parents to work with children aged birth to eighteen.

I am very excited to be the Infant/Toddler Specialist and look forward to working with all of you!
