ERIN DUPONT, COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER

Erin arrived at STAIR-Annapolis after more than a decade as a freelance writer and graphic designer. With additional experience in social media account management and internet marketing, her role is to tell the STAIR story throughout Anne Arundel County and beyond. Erin gives credit for her love of reading to her third-grade teacher, Mrs. Nicastro, and hopes every STAIR-Annapolis student discovers the stories and characters that move them, too. Born and raised in New England, Erin now calls Annapolis home, where she lives with her husband and their four children. She enjoys reading, yoga, and restoring thrift store furniture.

Malena first joined STAIR-Annapolis as a twice-weekly tutor at our Mills-Parole location, and she brings this valuable experience to her work as Volunteer Coordinator. Malena is responsible for managing a roster of more than 250 volunteers, arranging tutor workshops, recruiting and training new volunteers, and serving as a critical support for volunteers. Malena grew up in a bilingual Spanish-speaking household surrounded by books and understands how important it is for children to become stronger, more confident readers. She lives in Crownsville with her husband and enjoys reading, going to the beach, and spending time with her three children.
