THE STORY:

I am a wife, mom, Executive Director and runner. The order of that changes on a day-by-day sometimes hour-by-hour basis. I run Read Alliance, a non-profit that works to improve the educational trajectory of Kindergarten and 1st grade students by providing one-to-one tutoring in foundational reading skills. I have worked for Read for 8 years and became its Executive Director in March.

I run to keep sane. I moved to NYC 8 years ago. I can still remember watching my first NYC Marathon and thinking to myself, “I want to do that.” The next year I set out to train. Injury kept me from running the marathon that year, but I ran it the next year. Fast forward to present day, and I have run 2 marathons, countless half marathons and shorter distance races. My husband and I run together on the weekends, and one of my son’s first words was “run.” He knows the difference between his everyday stroller and the running stroller.

I am happy to be running the marathon for ADC. I first learned about ADC in the fall when Read Alliance came to work with them in 2 of their after school programs in Harlem. We provided our one-to-one tutoring program to students in their schools. When I decided to run the marathon this year and was looking for a charity to support, it seemed like a natural fit that I would run for an organization that is one of Read’s partners.

ADC is an agency that is working to change the lives of so many people in Harlem. Their impact has a far and impactful reach, and the leaders of ADC are truly working for the people they aim to serve. These are all things I hold in high regard when looking for an organization to support as well as qualities I strive to emulate as the leader of Read Alliance.
