Meet Our Director

Hello Families!!

My name is Jenessa Miller, but the kids call me Ms. Nessa. I have been working at Rosebuds since March of 2018. I absolutely love our program and wouldn't want to send my own children anywhere else! I have always loved working with children and have experience leading classrooms of all ages.


I grew up in Prescott, Wisconsin. My husband, John, and I both spent 5+ years in the Army. John and I met while deployed in Iraq. We spent a few years in Colorado prior to settling in Cottage Grove. We have 2 kids who attend Rosebuds. Emelyn is 3 and Ezra is 18 months. We have 2 dogs (a bulldog Elvis and beagle Shilah) and a cat (Tiger). I spend most of my free time hanging out with my husband and kids. We love going for family walks and spending time making memories together. We also enjoy fishing, traveling, weekend trips, and volunteering at church. 


I attended the University of Wisconsin – River Falls and obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Education. I have an active Wisconsin and Minnesota Teaching License. I have been a substitute teacher for various school districts in both Minnesota and Wisconsin. Prior to working at Rosebuds I worked at a local church as the Kids Ministry Leader. Once I started at Rosebuds, I was thrilled to be able to blend my previous two positions together in a church based classroom environment. 


I cannot wait to get to know all the kids and families at Rosebuds, please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly with any questions or concerns. I would love to get to know you more and help partner with you while your child grows and learns with us.



Many Blessings,

Ms. Nessa
