Celebrating a Decade of Dedication

06.20.2023 News

Join us in celebrating Jennifer Ford and her 10-year anniversary of working with Raising a Reader. In her role as Vice President of Finance and Operations, Jennifer leads important teams behind the scenes, ensuring everything runs smoothly at Raising a Reader. One of the highlights of her role is that she connects with different people throughout her day, including RAR staff, vendors and partners.

Jennifer is proud of the many milestones achieved by Raising a Reader over the years. Among them, one stands out—the team’s dedication to always putting children and families at the center of everything they do. 

Jennifer loves the outdoors and if she had one free hour a day, she would spend it hiking with my family, friends, or solo! One of her favorite books from the RAR library is “Mae Among the Stars “, written by Roda Ahmed and designed by Stasia Burrington.

We are grateful for Jennifer’s 10 years of dedication to not only Raising a Reader, but dedication to children and families across the country!
