We are bringing in Amanda Wagner, a fiercely ambitious speaker and business strategist for leaders who are hungry for achievement, driven to have a meaningful impact, and want to get fired up and focused! After two years of pivoting and unpredictability throughout the pandemic, we are bringing in Amanda to support us in reconnecting with why our work matters, the impact we have (and want to have), and elements of creating a consistent and consistently excellent experience for children and families. 

Hope to see you there! Please e-mail Vicki at if you have any questions.
