John is a rising junior at St. John’s College in Annapolis, MD. He was raised in Waterbury, VT - just down the road from CLiF - by two book-lovers; his mom is a voracious reader and his dad read aloud in primary school classrooms for ten years!
As a writer from Vermont Magazine once observed, CLiF does a lot with a little. We are able to accomplish so much thanks to our dedicated, creative, and energetic staff, board of directors, and board of advisors.
Erika joined CLiF in September 2016. As Communications Manager, she oversees CLiF's outreach to local, regional, and national media about CLiF's programs, partners, and grant initiatives.
Duncan founded CLiF in 1998. He has given hundreds of literacy presentations to children and parents throughout New Hampshire and Vermont. His vision and leadership have helped CLiF mature into an organization that has inspired thousands of low-income, at-risk, and rural children and given millions worth of brand-new books to children and struggling communities.
Jana joined CLiF in 2014. She manages CLiF's At-Risk and Summer Readers grants , as well as CLiF's Children of Prison Inmates program, and coordinates books and logistics for program events.
Stephanie joined the CLiF staff in October 2015. Luckily for CLiF, she responded to our call for weekly summer volunteers, so she has been getting to know CLiF since June 2015. As Office/Data Manager, she will put her background in market research to work.
Meredith joined CLiF in January 2014. She oversees all CLiF programs and manages our long-term programs Rural Libraries and CLiF Year of the Book. Her skill at developing programs from strategic vision to individual event details helps our program partners nurture relationships within their communities and build strong cultures of literacy.
