Morrigen Stoumbos always remembers having a passion for finding the most creative and efficient solution to any challenge—from leading a 4-H afterschool program to launching a free kitchen program for impoverished families—she has always been driven by the need to help others. And for more than four years, she has been applying this same passion at Apex Learning as the manager of operations and fulfillment.
In this role, she works together with schools and districts to maximize the success of their digital curriculum programs, making it easy for educators and administrators to access pivotal data and reporting to support their goals. Morrigen is determined to simplify the client experience to ensure educators are efficiently using the curriculum to best support the needs of their students.
“More than anything else, I love working together with districts to understand what they want to achieve and providing the most efficient way for them to get their struggling students up to speed,” she said.
Morrigen attended the University of Puget Sound and received Bachelor of Science degrees in chemistry and business prior to joining Apex Learning.
“I enjoy the technical aspects of chemistry and how different compounds react,” she said. “My undergrad research was on building molecules and determining how to enhance their efficiency. I’m doing the same thing in my role now, just on a slightly larger scale.”
Morrigen is also passionate about the people she works with at Apex Learning.
“Just about everyone at this company is amazing,” she said. “I love contributing together with our team to work toward our shared goal of supporting school districts meet the needs of struggling students.”
If Morrigen is not at work, you might catch her hosting a French-themed dinner party for her (very lucky!) friends. She grew up in Napa Valley where she attended culinary school and worked in the catering business for six years during high school and college, and the last two years she ran her own small catering company. And her creativity doesn’t stop at work. Currently, Morrigen is designing a board game with her husband which they plan to launch via a Kickstarter campaign in April.
