Paitra Houts received her Master's in Policy, Organization, and Leadership Studies from Stanford's Graduate School of Education in 2008. After graduating Paitra spent her time serving the youth in our community at the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Peninsula, as a School Site Director and more recently as the Director of Partnerships and Volunteer Services. Through these roles she supported over 600 volunteers and partners to make an impact on the lives of our local youth, helping build connections and opportunities. It is this commitment to service and education that brings her to Stanford. She is excited to work with faculty and students to help integrate service into their learning experience.
In her spare time Paitra enjoys cooking for friends and family, learning about the games industry from her husband, swimming with her son, and practicing yoga.
