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 during college which helped me to explore other ways of developing others, young and old. The drive and love of making a positive difference in our community eventually guided me to Frameworks. I look at social and emotional well-being as a critical part of overall health and wellbeing so an organization that blends my education background with my non-profit work passion was a natural choice. As part of my role, I look forward to leading the quality-driven expansion of our programming to equip adults with the training, coaching, and research-based resources they need to develop and nurture the emotional intelligence of children!
