Puja Shah

Community Outreach Team Lead

I am a Bay Area-based solution engineer working with schools and universities across the west coast on IT projects. I received my bachelor in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Texas at Dallas. My hobbies include singing, learning to play ukulele, reading, and spending time outdoors. I am excited to be part of the Funetix team because I am passionate about the mission of universal literacy and empowering children by teaching them to read!

 I currently attend the illustrious Hampton University where I am actively pursuing my degree in Psychology. I am very very excited and honored to be working with FUNetix to ensure that we dismantle as much illiteracy around the world as humanly possible. I am very passionate about helping people especially children and younger generations as they will be leading the world one day. While working with FUNetix and the American Youth Literacy Foundation, I am striving to use my leadership skills to cultivate a fun learning and working environment for everyone. I also hope to use this experience to learn and grow myself!

I am an Air Force Civilian & program management professional. I am also an HR Recruiter for a healthcare staffing agency. Currently, I am working on my Masters in Organizational Development & Leadership and have proudly obtained certifications as a Professional Resume Writer and Employment Interview Professional. I want to continue to develop in the HR field while also utilizing my skills to help further build FUNetix teams as well as FUNetix outreach into the community. When I am not busy working or volunteering, I am spending time with my husband, our three kids, and our fur babies whether at home or out in the Texas Hill Country.
