Reach Family Institute

Reach is a 501(c)3 non-profit whose mission is to transform children’s lives through knowledge and tools related to human brain development.  Reach’s work spans children and young adults who are functioning below age level in ability ranging from ADD to Cerebral Palsy to Brain Injury.

I helped the organization focus on short and long term goals, develop actionable success measurements, and prioritize key initiatives.  This has helped fuel 50% growth in the number of children on program in the last 2 years, build the foundation for long term stability, and pave the path for BrainFit Kids.

I am excited about our expansion into the broader category of early childhood education through the BrainFit Kids brand, which connects with a larger audience of parents and educators.  We just wrapped up the BrainFit Kids in Action playgroup in Lincoln Park and are excited for the launch of our new website and offerings later this year.
