To help people find and fearlessly move into the power of their unique story.
Firstly, when children build a strong reading foundation in elementary school, they are able to stay on track to remain in school, graduate, and pursue post-secondary education and training, which allows them to successfully transition into adulthood. This is why my company, Learn Jelly, is dedicated to ensuring that all 20M elementary students in the United States from low-income homes have the ability to improve their reading skills through our programs and services. As a result, Learn Jelly significantly reduces, and even eliminates, program and service costs to organizations that serve elementary students from low-income communities.
Secondly, more than ever, we need ideas that do more than sustain a business model but, solve a real societal problem or empower a community to improve their quality of life.
Sometimes, those ideas – even the great ones – don’t see the light of day because they don’t have the right connections, resources or funding. With the help of the Central Florida Foundation, Downtown CREDO, Rollins College, and Clean The World, I saw this as an opportunity to help social entrepreneurs live into the power of their story by helping them overcome these issues and create sustainable solutions to social, environmental, and economic issues.
Thirdly, I believe that individuals and companies lives and work get better when they come alongside each other. The CREDO Conduit society, a partnership with SunGate Capital, gives me an opportunity to provide people, freelancers, organizers, and business owners with a collaborative space to build and nurture dreams and to convene and engage in the areas of education, creative services and civic engagement.
Lastly, my family is dedicated to serving our communities by helping people access the hope and power of their unique stories through art, education and the gospel. As a result, we combine our individual missions, talents, and gifts to regularly conduct art and educational workshops for children and adults living in undeserved communities throughout Orlando and other areas of the world, such as Havana, Cuba. Through these efforts, it is our desire for God to use our marriage, work, and family to provide hope and a glimpse of His unconditional love to every community and person He calls us to serve.
Thank you for stopping by, and I look forward to finding a way to come alongside you.
