EJ, a Houston native, credits his role at Kids ‘R’ Kids of Barker Cypress to his family-oriented background and passion for working with children. EJ’s family has a long history in serving the community; his father worked for the Houston Fire Department for 35 years, where EJ’s brother now works. EJ’s love for children was inspired by his mother’s background as an OBGYN nurse, which eventually led to his interest in early childhood education.
EJ previously worked as a Sr. Energy Consultant at Choice Energy Services. As a top producer he originated over 1.5 billion kilowatts of power since his inception in the business in 2011 and was proudly involved in TEPA as an elected committee member for the past seven years. EJ also previously worked for JP Morgan, during which time he was named one of Fort Bend County’s “Successful Men in Business.”
EJ’s family history of protecting and contributing to the community, dedication to children and early education, and passion and skill set in business have prepared him well for his new role at Kids ‘R’ Kids of Barker Cypress. He is excited for the opportunity to give back to the community and support families who seek first-class child care and education for their young children.
EJ and our wonderful staff are committed to providing excellent educational value to the area, thus creating a healthier society where your children are fully prepared to become successful citizens, wherever they choose to live and work.
