Jade Koenigs (she/her/hers)
Girls Inc. Outreach Facilitator
Hello, Fam! My name is Jade and I love being a part of the amazing Girls Inc. team. Before repping Girls Inc., I lived in the Kingdom of Eswatini (formerly known as Swaziland) and co-facilitated a program called GLOW (Girls Leading Our World) for the Peace Corps (...let’s chat about the ethics of international volunteering sometime...). When not building the Girls Inc. empire, you can catch me adventuring in the wilderness, coaching rugby at UW-Madison or creating the fantasy world that is Dungeons & Dragons.
Rachel Ancheta (she/her/hers)
Girls Inc. STEM Coordinator
Hello! My name is Rachel Ancheta and I’m originally from the Philippines but lived the majority of my life in California. I recently relocated to Madison from the Bay Area where I was a youth mentor for a year and a Kindergarten teacher four years before that. I’ve also interned as a youth worker with an international nonprofit in several countries. I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies with a minor in music at California State University, East Bay. As the Girls Inc. STEM Coordinator, I’m building a STEM database with resources, local partnerships, and lesson plans for all of Goodman’s youth programs, while facilitating STEM program in our elementary after-school program. In my free time, I enjoy climbing, biking, watching NBA games, eating good food, playing music and hanging out with friends.
