Program: Karen Mathis, Jacksonville Daily Record
Spotlight Speaker: Aubrie Simpson, Fostering Connections
Aubrie was born and raised in suburban Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and has been a Northeast Florida resident for the past seventeen years.
Aubrie has a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Flagler College and a Master of Science in Pre-K/Primary Education from Nova Southeastern University. Aubrie began her career as a preschool and kindergarten teacher in high-poverty schools. With a strong passion for volunteer service and helping those in need, she wanted to do more. Aubrie left her public school teaching career in 2016 to work in the nonprofit sector. She has enjoyed volunteering with many local nonprofit organizations and worked for Kids Bridge Family Visitation Center prior to founding Fostering Connections. Aubrie saw a need to uplift children and youth impacted by foster care or trauma and provide support services for foster families through her own family’s foster care experience and her teaching experiences, which gave her the inspiration to found Fostering Connections. Aubrie loves working with youth in care and helping them achieve their goals. Aubrie is a member of the Rotary Club and serves on the board of the Early Learning Coalition of North Florida. She is a 2020 Leadership St. Johns graduate and was named St. Johns County’s 25 Under 40 Nonprofit Professional of the Year 2021. She is happily married to her husband, Steve, an environmental specialist and Adjunct Professor at Flagler College. In her spare time, Aubrie enjoys baking, shopping, playing bunco, and traveling.
