Why You Work at Frameworks:

Frameworks is the perfect opportunity to combine my experiences as an educator and leader to promote social and emotional learning and development amongst children, parents, and the community. It is my belief that strong, healthy relationships, emotional awareness, and a sense of connection with others and self are keys to experiencing life fully. I am truly honored to be a part of the Frameworks team and am incredibly proud of the impact we have on the mental health of our community.
