I support CASTL’s Commonwealth Early Childhood Education initiatives. For over 30 years, I have worked in management and director roles focused on increasing equity and access to high quality educational opportunities for children, youth, and families. Prior to CASTL, my recent positions include manager of youth educational and career exploratory programs at a community college, director of a regional public-private school readiness coalition, and technical assistance program officer for early childhood school readiness coalitions in Virginia.
