Position: EE Board Chair and Founder/Owner Urban Kangaroo
As the founder of Urban Kangaroo, a DC metro-area company that offers hip hop dance classes for local schools and special events, I understand the value of enrichment activities. I have seen first hand the joy that takes place when kids can learn new skills in a fun and safe environment. I have previously worked with Boys and Girls Clubs of America, Kids House after school program, Envision experiential learning programs, and Arlington Public Schools. I am a mom of two active boys who has loved watching her kids experience new things such as soccer, football, basketball, chess, and gymnastics. With each new opportunity my kids learned new skills and gained new confidence. I am ready to help give this same opportunity to many more kids. I truly believe that Empowering Enrichment is the perfect place to focus my passion for empowering the lives of youth!
Position: EE Executive Director
As the co-founder of Enrichment Matters, I am passionate about ensuring that enrichment programs are accessible to every child regardless of their financial means. These programs are vital to our communities because they provide opportunities for our children to ignite an interest, delve deeper into a favorite subject, or help to hone a skill that may not have otherwise been possible. The extent to which we can maximize the benefit of these opportunities for all children is invaluable not only to their success as individuals, but to our society as well. Empowering Enrichment exists to serve this purpose.
Position: EE Treasurer and Founder/Owner SPARK Business Academy
I have witnessed an incredible amount of practical learning taking place in enrichment programs. I'm proud to support Empowering Enrichment’s mission to allow every child, particularly those with financial needs, to enhance his/her education through access to wonderful enrichment programs, which can truly enhance the overall learning experience of those students.
