Please join us in welcoming Tracy Nájera to CDF-Ohio as Executive Director.
Tracy, who began her career with CDF-Ohio as a Research Fellow, has continued her commitment to improving the lives of children and their families throughout her professional career. Most recently, Tracy served as a Senior Consultant for Education First Consulting where she supported school districts and education partners to improve education outcomes for children. Previously, she spent six years as a Senior Director of the Ohio Appalachian Collaborative at Battelle for Kids where her responsibilities included managing a federal project with the state of Ohio to improve the efficacy of teachers serving students in Appalachian Ohio. Tracy also spent eight years at the State Office of Budget and Management, a majority of which she served as the Section Chief for Education under three Governors.
Tracy brings to her work with CDF-Ohio an understanding of the complex issues that impact children, proven effectiveness as an advocate in nonprofit and government settings, experience with systems that are and are not working for young people across Ohio, and an unrelenting passion for CDF’s mission.
