Our Team

  • Felicia Webb

    Executive director, Silicon Valley

    Felicia comes to us with more than 20 years of experience as an educator, therapist, consultant, and nonprofit leader with a strong track record working in various sectors including education, psychology, and leadership coaching. Originally hailing from Illinois, Felicia is now a proud Californian who most recently served as the CEO for her own independent consulting company. Prior to starting her own firm, Felicia served in several positions in the nonprofit sector. Prior to her nonprofit work, Felicia worked as an adjunct college professor, therapist and workforce development counselor. Felicia is adept in non-profit administration, teacher development, grant writing, and workplace assessment. Over the years, Felicia has created numerous programs to address issues such as literacy, under-employment, and lowering incarceration recidivism. Felicia believes in developing and maintaining strong community ties. She is a firm believer in taking a holistic approach to a child’s education. Felicia began her career in the classroom as a teacher. She earned a bachelorʼs degree in psychology from Millikin University. Seeing first-hand the inequality in the education system, Felicia continued her graduate studies at the Adler School of Professional Psychology to do her part in addressing certain inadequacies. Felicia earned a Master's degree with a dual concentration in psychology and in group psychotherapy/conflict resolution and neurological disorders such as ADHD. She is currently a doctoral candidate studying clinical psychology. When she is not working, Felicia is a dedicated family person, enjoying spending time with her nieces and nephews and exploring her new state of California.

  • Daron McDonnaugh

    Program manager

    My name is Daron McDonnaugh, and I'm a citizen of the world! While I don't have a single hometown (New York, San Francisco, and Maryland have all been home at various points), my passion for social justice led me to an MA in International Development with a focus on Conflict Resolution and Social Justice from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies in Monterey. This, combined with my experience working in conflict resolution with organizations like CRS and the Peace Corps, has fueled my desire to make a positive impact around the globe.
  • Andrew Roselo

    Program manager

    Through various roles over the years, Andrew has gained a strong passion for community engagement and service-learning. Prior to his current program manager role, he completed four AmeriCorps service terms with Reading Partners, two of which were served at his childhood elementary school. Having completed his Master's degree in Organization and Leadership through the University of San Francisco, Andrew also wrote his thesis paper on the intersection of critical service-learning, social justice education, and civic-minded development in higher education. He is excited to use his past knowledge and experiences to continue serving with local communities through a leadership role in Reading Partners! Outside of Reading Partners, Andrew has long-term interests in video games, broadway musicals, theme parks, Disney, kpop, and anime.
