The founders are all Smithtown residents with children who attend Smithtown schools. Two graduated from Smithtown High Schools and another moved here ten years ago to make a better life with her family. We have prior experience in the business world and have all have/had careers in diverse fields, one is a former VP from Deutsche Bank and Credit Suisse investment banks, and the other is an AP Chemistry teacher. We own private businesses and are active as in our community as PTA board members, PTA volunteers, Girl Scout leaders, and we continue to be heavily involved with our children’s education, sports and music programs. In addition to the founders, we have another Krissy on our Executive Board who grew up in Hauppauge & is a teacher at Accompsett Elementary for the past 15 years. She also has experience running character building & community service clubs for elementary aged children. Her family owns a party planning business so she is no stranger to fundraising!
