It is with great pleasure we introduce Najah Lowe as the new Director of Finance & Operations. Najah takes on the role after the retirement of Maggie Rosenfeld. Please be sure to introduce yourself and help welcome her to our school!
Prior to PS1, Najah served as CFOO at St. James' Episcopal School for 11 years. She has a Bachelor's degree in English Literature with a focus in Linguistics from CalState Dominguez Hills, and an MBA with a focus in Human Resources from the University of Phoenix, Reston, Virginia campus. She attended the UCLA extension program in 2013 for Nonprofit GAAP Accounting and Management.
The vast majority of Najah's career has been spent in education and more broadly in the nonprofit sector. She is an "elevater" and has a strong belief that healthy employees are the staple of any successful organization; therefore people management and personal growth and empowerment are her focus for PS1, for herself and others. In her spare time, she enjoys relational humor and improv, designing greeting cards, attending women's socials, breakfast and brunch affairs, watching inspirational television and Ted Talks, and spending meaningful quality time with family and friends.
