My job title is Program Director. I have been in this position since July 2010, when I joined METROsquash. My work involves leading programming for METROsquash team members. Primarily, I help high school students research, apply for and enroll in 4 year colleges and universities. What I like about my job is seeing students create ambitious goals and reach them. Through squash and different opportunities they are able to identify, team members grow. I am excited to see METROsquash and its students continue to grow each year. Programming and services that families receive is deeper and more comprehensive, and knowing that team members benefit from the time they spend at METROsquash pushes everyone - staff, students and supporters - to explore new and better ways to have an impact.
