Ivy Anderson has worked alongside people fighting for social justice in the education and social services world for the past 10 years. She previously worked for non-profits and public schools in Boston, in a variety of roles including after school teacher, public advocate and director of communications, thus bringing a breadth of administrative and relationship-building skills to her role as Director of Postsecondary Readiness.
Ivy believes deeply that young people (well, all people) develop identity through exposure to difference and the world around them, which is what she strives to show UA Maker students as they prepare for life post high school.
Ivy graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from Goucher College in Baltimore, Maryland where she majored in English/Writing with a concentration in African American Literature. She also studied abroad in Cape Town, South Africa and continues to travel whenever she can!
