- Program & Project Management
As an EP Fellow with Teach For America (TFA) in Memphis, Anjelica consulted on numerous human capital projects for TFA corps members, including matriculation, onboarding, hiring events, interview preparation, testing, and attrition. In her work she completed a differentiated analysis of corps member data and made recommendations on process improvement and marketing and branding.
Later, Anjelica served as the State Director of Strategic Partnerships at the Achievement School District (ASD) in Tennessee, a state-wide turnaround district with the mission of moving the bottom 5 percent of state schools into the top 25 percent. However, deciding which schools will join the ASD portfolio -- through a process named “conversion” -- is controversial. In her role with ASD, Anjelica tackled the difficult challenge of revamping the process to make it community driven, and empower communities to make decisions around the school model.
For the first time ever, the process was people-focused. Additionally, Anjelica led process changes that resulted in a positive and informative dialogue between community members and representatives from Shelby County and the Achievement School Districts at public community meetings for the first time in four years.
Anjelica was recognized as one of EP’s 10 EPic Alumni in 2016.
