Marquita Little Numan

Senior Policy Director

Alliance for Early Success

After spending my early career working in direct service roles with children in crisis, I felt called to change broken systems and improve how we support the healthy development of children. This led me to policy and advocacy roles in the government and nonprofit sectors. More recently, I've continued this work in philanthropy as a funder supporting policy advocacy organizations.
