Jared joined E4E with over 15 years of experience working within political, issue advocacy, and nonprofit organizations, leading external affairs, marketing/communications, and public affairs teams specializing in executing innovative digital programs. 

A native of greater Boston and graduate of Suffolk University, Jared launched his career as Communications Director for MA State Senator Richard T.

After obtaining a Masters Degree in Environmental Law and Policy (MELP) from Vermont Law School in 2011, Jared went on to work in Charlotte, NC as Digital Communications Lead for the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), a pre-eminent research and development nonprofit for the utility industry. 

Owing his life’s journeys to many of his quality public school teachers, Jared committed himself to equitable education advocacy in 2014, moving to California and joining New Teacher Center, where he led the organization’s rebrand and marketing strategy. 

In 2016, Jared went on to join the California Charter Schools Association (CCSA), serving in a variety of leadership positions, including Vice President, Communications and Vice President, Digital Strategy.
