As FNI’s Operations Manager, Gayle has key responsibilities for coordinating FNI’s trademark Discovery Workshops and Discovery Reports. In this capacity Gayle has served as a central figure in several FNI projects including The British School Caracas in Venezuela, GATES High School in Tampa, Florida, Billings Public Schools in Montana, Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic School Board in Ontario, Canada and the American School of Bombay located in Mumbai, India. Gayle is also directly involved with recruiting, professional development and marketing for FNI.
Gayle brings many personal strengths to the FNI team including her organizational and communication skills as well as a deep commitment to FNI’s cause – which is to improve the future for all children. Her interest in a new way to educate children is born from a conviction that no two individuals are alike, and that the diversity in their natural talents, passions and learning styles must be matched by an educational model that best suits each student and helps him or her to achieve his or her full potential. As someone whose own talent was suppressed as a ward of the “cells and bells” school system, she is able to see how a child influenced by schools developed under the FNI vision will not only thrive in this creative age but also be part of a larger movement to expand opportunities for children worldwide.
Gayle is a native of Atlanta, Georgia and a graduate of Branell Women’s College. She spent several years as the Manager of Member Services for F.A.B., Inc., an international foodservice co-op that just celebrated their 50th anniversary. In this capacity, Gayle was responsible for planning and implementation of international sales, marketing, procurement and organizing stockholder conferences. She was also the key liaison between the upper echelons of member companies and F.A.B. officers. Gayle reports directly to FNI President Prakash Nair and serves as a key liaison on the various projects that the firm is involved in.
