Welcome to the Bright Beginnings Team
Bright Beginnings is excited to welcome the newest member of our growing team! Meet Laura Keeley Saldana:
“Hello! I am so excited to be part of the Bright Beginnings team as the Program Manager – Early Learning Systems Coordination. I come to you with experience managing Early Childhood Specialists Training and Technical Assistance team for Region IX-Head Start/Early Head Start programs, and as director for UC Berkeley, Redwood City School District and CAR Infant Program in Palo Alto. I also had the pleasure of providing support to the Santa Clara County Office of Education as Program Operations Manager for HeadStart/EHS. I have an M.Ed. from Rutgers University and experience with federally and state-funded programs, fee-based programs, and early intervention services. On a personal note, I have 3 children and 2 kitties. My husband and I moved to Santa Cruz about 5 years ago, and we love the Central Coast! I am looking forward to learning more about Monterey County and the hard work being done to prepare children for life and school in this community. I look forward to meeting and working with you! ”
