Founder and CEO
I am an ex-software executive who decided to change tracks and follow my passion for leadership development in youth. It all started when I could not find quality afterschool programming for my three boys who at the time were in elementary school. I wanted a place which not only was a safe place with loving teachers who challenged my boys, but also a place for learning all the many things that public schools nowadays do not offer their students, like theater, soccer, destination imagination, formal public speaking training, and so on.
I talked to a few of my neighbors and found, not surprisingly, that I was not the only parent who wanted an enriching environment for their children between 3pm and 6pm.
And so, I founded Positive Ally® in 2010. We have been fortunate to have received a very positive response in all the markets where we have launched our centers and we now hope to bring our concept to all major cities in the United States via the medium of franchising.
