Apparently it’s been a year since I wrote, “Stay Tuned,” and what a year that’s been! I graduated with my Ph.D. in Human Development and Family Studies and entered back into the worlds of education and nonprofits. My new day job is as a program director at a community revitalization center where I supervise educational, public health, and other programs for individuals and families throughout the lifespan (infants through seniors). In my “spare” time, I keep up with my own human development research and help grassroots organizations, after school programs, and other startup nonprofit organizations create, evaluate, and/or improve the quality of their various programs. Helping organizations to make a difference in the world is my passion, and I look forward to sharing the exciting things these (and other) agencies are doing through my blog. Thanks for stopping by!
