Relevant Work Experience:
Saima joined the Frameworks family with over a decade of experience working with at-
risk youth and populations in the Tampa Bay area. Previously with another local non-
profit, she worked in an elementary school setting managing initiatives and grants
focused on the reduction and prevention of childhood obesity, literacy support, volunteer
engagement, and community leadership development, among others.
Why You Work at Frameworks:
Very early in life, I determined that my goal in life was simple: to help others. With my
educational background in biomedical sciences and public health, I anticipated
becoming a physician but had a coincidental introduction to non-profit work which
helped me explore another way of developing others, young and old. Fast forward ten
years, and that love of making a positive difference guided me to Frameworks. I look at
social and emotional well-being as a critical part of overall health so an organization that
blends my education background with my non-profit work passion was a natural choice.
I look forward to continuing to support the quality-driven expansion of our programming
in the Tampa Bay area!
