HyeSook Chung

Executive Director

For the past 17 years, HyeSook Chung has worked to improve the lives of children through direct service, program management, philanthropy and advocacy. HyeSook has worked for various nonprofit organizations focusing on the areas of child care, early childhood development, welfare-to-work and school readiness.

In the fall of 2007, she began consulting for Washington Area Women's Foundation to support the Early Care and Education Funders Collaborative and the DC State Board of Education. While supporting the Collaborative, she worked with corporations and foundations to design and implement goals, programmatic design and grantmaking strategies for the Collaborative. For the DC State Board of Education, she conducted a preliminary Birth to Three Needs Assessment.

Earlier in her career, much of HyeSook's work was training and assisting family support workers, home visitors and outreach workers in community-based programs in the greater Boston area. In addition, HyeSook worked with the Head Start Quality Improvement Center and the Early Head Start Resource Center supporting the Early Head Start programs throughout the country.

HyeSook serves on numerous advisory boards focused on social change and outcomes for children, including the Annie E. Casey’s KIDS COUNT steering committee, DC Medical Care Advisory Committee, the Home Visitation Council and DATA KIND.

She is a proud mother of two DCPS students.

 

Shana Bartley

Senior Policy Analyst

Shana Bartley joins the staff of DC Action as a Senior Policy Analyst. She brings experience in policy analysis, advocacy and direct service. As a native of the Washington-Metropolitan area, she is passionate about closing the achievement gap and improving the lives of all DC children.

After receiving her undergraduate degree in 2011 from Washington University in St. Louis, Shana began working in DC as a youth organizer and program coordinator assisting teen women in their efforts to advocate for improved access to health education and services. This work included coordinating an afterschool program in local public and public charter high schools as well as a summer program to help teens build skills and capacity as individuals and community advocates.

These experiences inspired her to learn more about how health, education, and other policies intersect and influence outcomes for children and their communities. In 2013, Shana began a graduate program in order to strengthen her skills. She is currently completing a Master of Science in Public Health in Health Policy at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

She is excited to be a part of a team working to support DC’s youngest residents.
