Destined to serve in a role to motivate others to achieve ultimate success, Quiwintre embarked on the passionate journey of educating youth in 2005 as an 8th grade Algebra I teacher for Birmingham City Schools. She continued her devotion to the sciences as Program Manager for Eureka! Teen Achievement Program and the Teen Leadership Program with Girls Inc. of Central Alabama. She inspired all girls to be strong, smart, and bold while exploring careers in S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields through summer camps hosted with professors from the School of Engineering at UAB, participating in engineering conferences at the University of Alabama and Georgia Institute of Technology, developing an internship model offering paid internships to young ladies with businesses throughout the Birmingham area, as well as hosting local engineering conferences with community partners. The Teen Leadership Program tripled in membership during Quiwintre’s tenure. In conjunction with volunteers from the Junior League of Birmingham, young ladies participated in college tours in and out of state, etiquette sessions, FAFSA workshops, ACT prep courses, workplace fashion expos at Saks 5th Avenue, cooking demonstrations, and bonding with other girls from Birmingham and surrounding areas.

Quiwintre joins Ed from the Woodlawn Foundation as the Manager of Community Partners at Woodlawn High School. She served as the advocate for students and families to benefit from programs and services integrated into the school campus from community partners focusing on eight domains of service: youth development, health, mental health, family support, education, attendance, college/career readiness, and community development.

As Ed Program Manager, Quiwintre is enthusiastic to return to a college and career preparation focus and continue to serve the students in Birmingham City Schools through Educate Local programs.
