Kayleigh Kiernan attended Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, FL and graduated from Marywood University in Scranton, PA with a degree in English and Secondary Education.
During my teaching career I refined my communication techniques and gained knowledge about what this upcoming generation values as well as became aware of various community needs. I took roles in youth outreach programs such as youth basketball/ volleyball coaching and mentoring theater programs. I extended my love of writing outside of the classroom and entered into freelance writing where I’ve worked with various entities including public speakers, rising authors, other educators, and management at Wells Fargo Bank.
Entering into the marketing field was a new stepping stone that I knew would allow me to actively engage in a wide-range of creative and entrepreneurial interests that I hold near and dear. I have a strong desire to help support a generation of independent, intellectual, healthy, and strong individuals.
Now that I work with the National Addiction Awareness Complex, my focus in marketing has shifted to education once again. At NAAC, we realize that addiction has touched a vast majority of our country’s population. The only way to fight against it, is to ensure that we understand the threat fully. We are not a treatment center, but an education center for all.
My name is Luis Borrero and I grew up with the 13th Street Gang. No, not that kind of gang, but rather an educational marvel. I was born in Reading, PA, and from pre-kindergarten all the way up to finishing my Bachelor’s degree in college, I had all of my education on 13th Street! At Albright College, I graduated with a B.A. in Digital Communications. Over my life I have been gifted enough to train in videography, photography, graphic design, web development, and much more. I’ve been using these skills here at the complex, but I’m young, so I have a lot to learn!
Here at the complex, I’ve been able to use a lot of the things I learned over the years. From video production to graphic design and even helping develop this very website! I hope you enjoy all we have to offer and don’t be afraid to contact us!
