Paige Jenkins, a St. Charles native, joined the Foundry Art Centre family in September 2021 as the Special Events Coordinator. After graduating from the University of Missouri with a bachelors in Early Childhood Education, she worked in Missouri Public Schools for four years. In Columbia, MO, Paige worked in an arts integrated elementary school and fell in love with sharing the magic of the arts with others.
