Stacey Nishikawa, Peggy’s second daughter, joined West River Academy in January 2017 as our Administrative Director. She is the school’s Registrar. Her prior experiences include volunteering at a private school in Kenya, traveling to Australia, attending college, and working in customer service. She brings her warm heart and friendly spirit to helping families on their unschooling journey.
Rachel Nishikawa, Peggy’s youngest daughter, joined us in August 2017 as our Creative Director. She is a talented artist, and we are proud to display her artwork: the banner for the website, our new bird logo, and the letterhead on our documents. She recently graduated from the University of Hawaii with a Communications Degree, and then worked in a corporate management training program. Her cheerful attitude and ready laughter bring a spirit of joy to West River Academy.
Stacey and Rachel are happy to come full circle and be working with their mother, Peggy, and sister, Karen, helping to support a new generation of families who are pursuing their dreams outside of the school system. You can read more about their unschooling experiences on the Our Story page.
As the full family team, we look forward to serving all of our homeschooling families for years to come.
