Director of Corporate & Foundation Relations
As the Director of Corporate & Foundation Relations at CAST, Janet is focused on “making the case” for CAST and UDL with corporate partners and foundations—building significant alliances and partnerships with organizations to solve education’s thorniest challenges.
She works closely with CAST project teams to create and implement fundraising strategies to advance CAST’s mission and direct activities that build CAST’s visibility with corporate and foundation funders and partners.
Prior to joining CAST in 2007, Janet was a college research and writing tutor for six years working with a caseload of students with learning and attention issues, many of whom she worked with throughout their four years of college. Wanting to make an impact beyond the individual students she tutored, Janet returned to graduate school and earned a M.Ed. with a focus on organizational leadership. Prior to her work as a tutor, Janet worked in the private sector for Bain & Company for ten years in the training and development group.
"Carol Dweck’s work on growth mindset is foundational to how we approach teaching and learning. I wish I had read her work before raising my own kids!"
