Dr. Kayce Anderson / Executive Director
Kayce is a humanitarian, ecologist, mom, explorer, and student. She feels strongly that education is a right and a leverage point to address many global challenges. She completed a bachelor degree at the University of Colorado, Boulder and a PhD at the University of California, Davis. She applies her training as an ecologist to our work, combining evidence based methods and community input to improve education outcomes for girls.
Kayce loves to see people set big goals and succeed. There is not much distinction between Kayce's work and personal lives. In all cases, she tries to stay outside more than in, surround herself with people she respects, and challenge her own preconceptions.
