Kids Club Lincoln Park School Staff

Barbara Burke

AM Site Director

My name is Barbara Burke and I live in Pine Brook with my husband Chris, whom I’ve been married to for 24 years. I have two boys, Matthew, 20, a junior at Muhlenberg College and Michael, 17, a senior at Montville High School. I graduated from University of Maryland with a degree in Journalism with my focus on advertising (which is the field I worked in for years). I’ve been a member of the Y for 19 years, volunteering in various capacities- committees, Board of Governors and 3 years as Chairman of the Board. My kids attended preschool, summer camp and took classes at the Y for many years. I currently teach a Swim, Gym & Fun class for preschoolers at the Y and substitute for other preschool classes.

Hi everyone! My name is Carmela Pagliarulo and I graduated from Rowan University with a degree in Health and Physical Education. I am a big sports fanatic. I love watching sports, playing sports, and coaching sports. I played soccer, basketball, and spring track. I am a Physical Education teacher for Apple Montessori School. I am also a fitness trainer at the Max Challenge of Wayne gym. As you can see, health and fitness are a huge part of my life. I have worked for the YMCA for four years now.

Brooke Olson

Support Staff PM

Hello, my name is Brooke Olsson and this is my third year at Kids Club. I graduated from Boonton High School where I played varsity field hockey since freshman year. I am currently attending County College of Morris. I love sports and spending time working with children. I have experience with young kids and enjoy seeing them happy while doing activities. I was an L.I.T (leader in training) at Camp Nejeda the past two summers. This program taught me how to create safe activities, how to bond with children, and how to keep the kids safe while having fun. I also volunteer at a local hospital for another kid program. At this program, we go to many different places around the county. It is my job to watch over the kids and participate in the activities they are doing. Overall, I love kids and I promise to you that I will do my best to keep your children safe while having a blast at the same time.

Colin Martin

Support Staff

Hello! My name is Colin Martin, and this is my first year working at Kids Club. I am currently a Junior at The College of New Jersey and am currently taking a semester off to transfer somewhere more local. I grew up in YMCA programs such as Kids Club and Summer Camp and have spent some time volunteering to coach at sports clinics that were run by the Track and Basketball teams, I’ve been a part of. Even though I am a newcomer I feel that I have a lot to bring to the table when it comes to supporting the members of Kids Club and I hope to be a positive influence on the program!
