About NPK

Our Staff


Vicki Hahn

My name is Vicki Hahn and I am the new NPK director. I am extremely excited, amazed and blessed to be part of the staff of NPK. I also am looking forward to meeting and getting to know the students and families that make up NPK.
    My husband Kenneth and I are celebrating 32 years of marriage and are hoping for many more years to come. We are members of the Lutheran Church of the Nativity. We are blessed with four wonderful grown daughters, Kirsten, Brittany, Patricia and Elizabeth. My youngest two, who are twins, attended NPK when they were young. Kirsten is married and finishing Physician Assistant school. She graduates this August. Brittany is also married, She lives in the middle part of the state and works for Advent Health for FedEx as their athletic trainer/OSHA person. Particia is engaged. She runs our gymnastics gym. Elizabeth lives in Orlando. She is a nanny and works for Disney. Our first grandchild was born four month ago. Shawn is Patricia’s son. Ken and I love spoiling him rotten!
    About 22 years ago, Kenneth and I decided to open Hahn’s Gymnastics. We have loved building and growing the business over the years.  We get to inspire and train children of all ages through physical movement and play.
    Kenneth is now retired from the military. Our family moved back home about 25 years ago. I taught the Little Explorers class for two years.  .
   Thanks to being a military family, my family loves to travel. We love to explore other countries, go on cruises and of course go to Disney to visit my favorite cast member (daughter Elizabeth). I also enjoy reading, cooking and painting.
   Working with children and their families has been my passion and love for most of my life. I enjoy watching them grow, discover, make mistakes, learn from their mistakes and blossom into the person God wants them to be. I am so blessed God has given me this opportunity and look forward to working with all of you.
