Piper Slowinski has been working at PYD since early 2012. They have a B.A. from Gettysburg College in a self-created major focusing on child development and disability, and a Masters in Nonprofit Leadership from the Questrom School of Business at Boston University.
Piper had a form of cancer while growing up, and that experience having a temporary disability instilled in her the desire to be an advocate and ally to the disability community. They have worked with people with disabilities for the past 13+ years.
In college, they spent a semester in Denmark studying their child care practices for children with disabilities. She has also interned with the child life team at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, and has volunteered for many years as a camp counselor and mentor to youth with disabilities.
When they’re not at work, Piper enjoys hiking and camping, video games, D&D, and geeking out over all things sci-fi/fantasy.
