Mariah Flynn is the Education Program Coordinator for the Greater Good Science Center and provides administrative support for GGSC education initiatives like the Summer Institute for Educators. Participants and colleagues alike know her as “the woman who sends all the detailed emails.”
Before joining the GGSC, Mariah worked with the Schools of Hope (SOH) Project in Madison, Wisconsin. Serving first as an AmeriCorps member and later as a SOH staff member, she coordinated volunteers and early literacy resources at low-income Madison preschools and provided support to volunteer tutors and AmeriCorps members as they navigated the world of working with elementary-aged students. Prior to her time at SOH, Mariah earned her B.S. in Human Development and Family Studies from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
Mariah and her wife, Anna, made the big leap to the left coast in late 2014, just as another winter was arriving in Wisconsin. They are grateful to have found sunny weather and a welcoming community in the East Bay!
