Kynthia comes to MAPS with a B.A. in political science, an M.S. in human computer interaction, and a lifelong interest in models of personality and development. Her interests have evolved over the years into a fascination with the design of institutions, organizations, and experiences that serve as vehicles for transpersonal growth. She became involved with MAPS in late 2009, when she interned in the office during the planning period for “Psychedelic Science in the 21st Century”; since then she has worn a number of hats, and her current focus is the ongoing improvement of our constituent database, so that we can continue to scale our fundraising and education projects to meet the demands of Phase 3. She also still assists with volunteer management at events, and she has been a proud member of the Zendo Project team at Burning Man since 2012. She is honored to have the opportunity to meet and work with so many passionate, intelligent, and creative people, and she looks forward to continuing to support MAPS as it grows.
