Partnership Development Director
Madhuri Mannava is our West Coast Partnership Development Director. She comes from a family background that always stressed the importance of education, but recognized this was a privilege that others do not have. She continued to look for ways to help fill this gap. She became a tutor in high school and then a teaching assistant in graduate school. She pursued an MBA with a focus in social impact, during which time she also joined the leadership team of a community organization focused on increasing awareness and volunteerism revolving around various social issues that were both local and national. In her free time, she loves to travel, try new foods, and play with her dog. Her favorite childhood book series was Harry Potter, although she fondly remembers The Rainbow Fish, which happened to also be the preschool production she had played a role in.
