Sara joined the FCCC Board in March 2017. Sara’s daughter, Aviva, was previously enrolled at FCCC from September 2014 through August 2018. FCCC supported Sara and her husband throughout Aviva’s formative years (from infant to 4.5) and certainly helped to shape Sara and her husband as parents, during that time, as well. Sara and her husband will be forever grateful to FCCC. Sara elected to join the FCCC Board to be a more active contributor to the FCCC community and continues to serve because of FCCC’s incredible impact on all of its constituents. Sara works as an Operations Manager at Wyncote Foundation, a private non-operating foundation.

I joined the board in September 2014. My daughter Lexi started at FCCC earlier this year in Cuddle Cubs as our family relocated back to Philadelphia. I am a professor of early American history at Temple University and I recently published my first book which is about civil society and voluntary associations in colonial Philadelphia. As a scholar of Quakerism and community in the eighteenth century, I am excited as a board member to get to move out of the past and into the present, helping to make FCCC a vital, nurturing place for our children, families, and staff.
