Jamie Parganos began her foray into youth development as a theater artist writing devised musicals for elementary school students at several schools throughout New York City. Following her success in that role, she acted as a Program and Education Director at various organizations throughout New York, including Good Shepherd Services, LEAP, Manhattan Youth and SAYA. She later served as the Executive Director of Broadway Bound Kids and as a Teaching Assistant at the New School of Social Research. Post-COVID, she saw a need for equitable access to meaningful enrichment activities and partnered with Jiyoung Park and Jon Soto to launch Creative Muse. Together, they have drafted a new learning model centered on creativity and mindfulness. In addition to her work in nonprofit, Jamie is the acting CEO of parenting companies, Wonder Mommy and Mommy Hacks.
