Hi! I’m Evelyn! I am an Academic Coach for Staying Ahead of the Game LLC. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science from Austin College and a Master’s Degree in Community and Regional Planning.  I currently work as a Curriculum Operation Specialist with KIPP Charter Schools.


I have always been interested in education.  I was a Teach For America Corps Member and have experience working with students of all ages, especially elementary and middle school aged students.  I enjoyed working with and building relationships with my students.  My favorite part was watching them grow as people.  I look forward to helping students to be more organized and on top of their schedules and tasks.  I will always encourage students to ask questions and push themselves.

Chris is also an Academic Coach and part of the Marketing & Business Development team at Staying Ahead of the Game! LLC. The focus of SAOTG’s unique coaching program is helping students to improve their executive functioning skills, with the goal of helping students perform to their potential by equipping them with the systems, habits, tools, and skills they need to manage stress and achieve greater success. 

Whether he is teaching classes on executive functioning skills, creating content marketing campaigns for companies, or working one on one with students, Chris brings creative solutions to enduring problems and a deep desire to change the world for the better, one person at a time.
