Erin P, MEd

Director of Administration

One of the first things that struck me about the organization was how much progress and growth we get to be a part of. Everyone fully commits to clients making progress towards their goals and commits to their own personal and professional growth, and improvement of our community. I was hooked after my 2nd week here when a client made eye contact and smiled for the first time – it was a huge moment for him and our whole team and his development just took off from there. This is what I still love about our organization. I learn something new everyday and I’m surrounded by a community that wants to always do the best we can.

My Story

Volunteering at my church’s youth summer camp and working at the LEGO store lead me to look for a career working with children.

Krickett P

Administrative Manager

As a student, I volunteered with a community organization in Ohio that assists individuals with visual impairments and Autism Spectrum Disorder. Through this work, I became aware of how difficult it can be for families to access the specialized care and resources they need in order to ensure that their loved ones are able to thrive and lead independent lives.

My Professional Goals

To continue expanding my professional background in healthcare management and program development. I believe everyone deserves equal access to care and want to continue developing high-quality channels of access for these needs to be met in society.

Miranda B-S, BA

Marketing Manager

I cut my teeth in start ups and was most recently overseeing DIY home security product launches in the US and South America. It was a great learning experience, but home security was never a passion, and I wanted to pursue something that made a positive impact on my community. After learning about the unique and vital services that Blue Bird Day and Eyas Landing provide, I knew I wanted to be a part of the marketing team so I could help spread the word about the incredible work being done here!

Jordi P, M.H.A.

Office Manager

After becoming a father, I have had my eyes opened to all the ups and downs of parenthood. My son went through a time where he needed some Occupational Therapy and it showed me an area in life where I want to make a difference for all children. With a background in veterinary administration, I felt it was a natural fit to find myself with Eyas Landing.
