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!


Jai Bell

Community Outreach Team Lead

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.
