Sydney Tilleman

Sydney Tilleman has been a nurse for a little over 5 years and currently works at Kootenai Health in the Heart Center. She grew up in the small farming community of Genesee in Idaho's Palouse country. She began working toward her nursing degree while still attending high school and through college at Lewis-Clark State College. After graduating, Sydney lived in Boise, Idaho for a while and worked on the Step Down unit at St. Alphonsus while her husband, Beau finished his Masters Degree in Athletic Leadership at Boise State University. They moved back to the inland northwest to be closer to family after having their daughter, Blayke. Beau is now the Athletic Director at Shadle Park High School.

Blayke began gymnastics at Spokane Gymnastics when she was about 9 months old. One day, Sydney walked by the Move To Learn Preschool classroom and decided to ask about the program. She absolutely fell in love with the program and what it has to offer. Sydney thinks it is a wonderful experience for Blayke as well. The teachers and therapists at Children FIRST Therapy are one of a kind. They are compassionate, outgoing, personable and truly invested in the kids they work with. They make everyone feel like family, which is tough to come by!

Sydney’s family loves the outdoors. They go camping, side-by-side riding and boating on the river. They also spend a lot of time at sporting events, cheering on Shadle Park. Miss Blayke has definitely become a sports girl! Right now her favorite sport is Volleyball! Go Highlanders!
