Eileen Piper, previously the Denver Preschool Program's Director of Policy and Program Administration, is currently the Acting Chief Executive Officer for DPP. With a bachelor’s and master’s degree in early childhood education, Eileen spent several years teaching in preschool classrooms before transitioning into the child care resource and referral arena. There she provided support to parents and corporations in her roles at a nonprofit agency and Work/Family Directions, a national work and family consulting firm. After receiving her MBA from Harvard University she worked in partnership with senior management at McDonald's Corporation, as a part of their Strategic Development group. Eileen also opened and managed the Denver office of Parson Consulting. In three years she successfully grew that office to more than sixty employees and $6 million in revenue.
