"I was honored and humbled to be recognized as a finalist for the Social Entrepreneur of the Year Award along with so many other innovative leaders. For me, it’s not just about the fact that we are reaching 33,000 kids."
"[Playworks Trainers] empower everyone with the vision and the resources to make incremental changes that begin to positively impact not just the recess culture, but the entire learning culture of a school."
