Our Staff

The GrowSmart Team represents multiple City departments, community organizations, and the local school division. The team meets monthly to identify and address important issues affecting early childhood education and development in Virginia Beach. By coming together on a regular basis, we are able to have a greater collective impact than any individual or one organization can achieve alone. The GrowSmart Team is responsible for the implementation of GrowSmart's strategic vision. Below you will find a list of our team members and their contact information.
