Gwen Smith

Administrative Assistant

Gwen received her B.A. in English Writing from the University of Colorado at Denver. A Colorado native, she moved to New Orleans after graduation and worked as a freelance writer and editor in the film industry for several years. Wanting to give back to her community, she earned her teaching certification and proceeded to work as a teacher and administrator in New Orleans, Houston, and most recently, West Philadelphia. Gwen’s time in education made her passionate about providing essential workers with the support they need so that they can serve their communities and thrive. Having had her own experience with disability during her career as an educator, Gwen was attracted to the PearsonRavitz mission of educating, empowering, and insuring people who serve their communities. She enjoys hiking in the Wissahickon, taking trips to the Jersey Shore, and lavishing attention on her dog Val.
