Meet Your Area Manager

Hello, My name is Stephanie Gonzalez. I am so excited to be working as an Area Manager for the Cranbury and Lakewood School Districts. Before AlphaBEST I earned a Bachelor's degree in Visual Communications and worked as a small business manager and Marketing Assistant for a non-profit. I enjoy the Arts and traveling during my spare time. I absolutely love working with children and value the relationships I have made with the children, their families, and also the district during my time with AlphaBEST. My goal is to continue building these relationships while making sure your children are engaged, safe, and having fun.

Meet Your Regional Director

Greetings! My name is Khyati Shah-Pillai, and I have been working with AlphaBEST since 2016. I have had the privilege of working with families in Prince William County VA, Tewksbury MA, and now New Jersey. My background in parenting and early childhood education is the foundation for my role at AlphaBEST. I believe strongly in finding the balance between learning and emotional readiness for our students no matter what obstacles they may face. I am excited to build our programs in Western NJ.
