Our Story


Kid Spa Austin

Kid Spa Austin was founded by husband and wife, Ken and Jamie Morrissey.  Prior to meeting Jamie, Ken was a single father looking for ways to spend more time with his two school-aged children, Tyler and Meaghan.  Ken recognized the need for safe, fun and reliable childcare, and Jamie agreed to support him in his venture to open a drop-in childcare center.  The couple married in September 2009, and opened the doors to Kid Spa Austin in Circle C Ranch in December 2009. 

About Ken

Ken grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and moved to Texas after graduating college.  He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois where he graduated in 1989.  Ken spent 20 years at Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), and gained experience across a wide range of engineering/business functions and ran AMD’s worldwide supply planning organization until his retirement in 2009.  Ken is the father of four children… Tyler, Meaghan, Brooklyn and Hailey.  

About Jamie

Jamie grew up in the Texas Hill Country and moved to Austin to attend the University of Texas.  After receiving her Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering, Jamie worked as a Business Process Consultant at Accenture and later, a Business Planning Manager at AMD.  Jamie was able to leave her corporate job behind in 2012, when Kid Spa Austin opened its second location in Avery Ranch.  Jamie is the mother of Brooklyn and Hailey, and also step-mom to Ken’s older children, Tyler and Meaghan.
