Jeannette Frederick

Co-Owner

With a double major in Business Administration and Marketing and a Minor in Psychology, Jeannette brings a wealth of business knowledge and experience to PowerKids Center.  Having been involved in small businesses for most her life, Jeannette started out managing two locations for her family’s chain of photography stores.  Alongside husband Tom, she went on to own and operate a successful aviation business out of San Diego before relocating to Palm Desert in 2007. 

Most of our families know Jeannette as the cheerful face of PowerKids Center.  Likeable and good-natured, she is easily the most popular person around PowerKids.  Oftentime the first to arrive and the last to leave, our staff admiringly refer to her as "Super Woman".

The Fredericks are a Marine family, with Tom currently deployed in Japan for two years.  Together they have raised two wonderful teenagers.  Carmen is a competitive volleyball player who is known to take it upon herself to answer the phone, repair a mat or even vacuum up a mess around the gym, get this, without being asked! Their oldest, Alexa, graduated from Palm Desert High School in 2012 with a 4.0 GPA.  She is currently on academic scholarship with the University of Bridgeport, where she is also a member of their National Championship winning gymnastics program.
