Network Updates

Welcome, Salaine McCullough!

Provider Services Program Assistant

Hello, hello; I'm a new addition to the Provider Services team! Driven by a desire to provide Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) enrichment to the community, I am currently pursuing a degree in Science Communication with the hope of being able to present the public with information and research-based resources in an accessible format. I believe that by expanding our knowledge about how the mind develops, we'll be capable of providing quality training to providers and the young children they care for. As a Program Assistant, I'm eager to assist in any way that I can, and look forward to collaborating with the Network's members. I can be reached at via phone at (415) 494-4669 or email at Take care!
