Ryan has been the Academic Coordinator at the Brevard Center since September of 2008. In that time Ryan acquired the responsibility to promote growth within the academic department when she became Lead Academic Coordinator. She appreciates the opportunity to train, develop projects and facilitate communication with the Academic Coordinators at all CIP centers.
From the University of Central Florida, she received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a minor in Cultural Anthropology and a Master of Arts in Social Science Education.
Ryan really enjoys working at CIP, because she can apply the skills and knowledge she has acquired in a novel fashion while constantly learning something new. In addition, she is proud to play a role in the growth of young adults who aspire to find their place, through planning, practice and failure in this socially complex world.
Ryan is a third generation Floridian who currently resides in Brevard County with her husband, D.J. and son, Darren. She loves spending her downtime with her family, watching movies, volunteering in the community, traveling, and doing various outdoor activities.
