Ariana is a mom to Gabriella and Dalton. Their family is a wonderful example of school choice, initially they were in the public school system where they had an incredible experience, but now they are in a private school with amazing teachers and that is the right fit for their family.  Ariana loves to spend time with her family and dogs, traveling, hiking and riding her horse in the beautiful Sonoran Desert.

Ariana attended the University of Arizona with a degree in BS in Business from the Eller College. Before starting ALF with her husband, Aaron, the Foundation’s CEO, she worked in commercial real estate.  She did marketing and handled the processing of lease and sale negotiations.  In addition, she also worked in the accounting department. Ariana also worked as a substitute teacher.  She worked in special education classrooms and classes from kindergarten through high school. This gave her a glimpse into the Arizona public education system.

Ariana loves working with families and hearing the impact the right educational environment can make in a child’s life. She looks forward to seeing the continued impact school choice and the tax credit program have on Arizona’s students and future leaders.
