Social Innovations Officer
I work for Ready for School to help my community continue to thrive and continue to thrive by helping children and families be ready for their educational career. I am inspired by my community and how the people in this community are inspired to continue to make the area a fantastic place to live. In my role I work to build up unique connections through the community to help families make a successful transition into kindergarten.The most exciting part of my job so far has been being able to be part of some very cutting edge work and being able to be very creative.
When I am not working I can be found kicking it with friends and family on grand adventures.

Community Engagement Manager
I work for Ready for School because I believe in the power of education and I believe that everyone should have equal access to education. By better preparing students for Kindergarten, Ready For School is working to close that gap between students that is unfortunately present in school from day one. However, we don't stop there. We strive to also prepare parents, which, being a parent myself, I know is a relief to have an organization out there making sure I don't have to stumble through the process on my own. In my role, I work to reach the families in the community and make sure that they have the resources and information that they need to ensure their children are successful.
When I'm not working I can be found reading, cross stitching, or designing some crazy DIY project for around the house off of Pinterest.

I lived in Argentina for 6 months and was also able to go Bungie Jumping in Costa Rica (much more terrifying and thrilling than jumping out of a plane!)
