SEA is delighted to welcome Jessica Davis to the team as Research and Projects Associate and Dora Lubin Bayliss as Director of Program Support. Davis and Bayliss bring a variety of expertise in squash, health, education, and nonprofit management and will help SEA provide high quality support to our member organizations and network staff.

During her time at Penn’s Perelman School of Medicine, Davis worked on various research projects, partnering with the Penn Medicine Abramson Cancer Center, Independence Blue Cross, the Mixed Methods Research Lab, and faculty in the nursing and public health programs. “I’m excited to explore a new and rewarding side of squash and interact with individuals who seek to make the sport more accessible and equitable,” says Davis.

Bayliss is joining the team with a decade of network experience under her belt. She spent seven years in leadership positions at SquashBusters Lawrence, first as Program Director and later as Executive Director. Prior to working at SQB, Bayliss was CitySquash’s Director of High School Academics and College Support and held positions at an arts education nonprofit and PBS. Bayliss has a B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania and M.Ed. from Harvard University. As Director of Program Support, Bayliss will be a point person for network staff and leadership, identifying and sharing best practices, overseeing member reviews, student safety, staff trainings and presentations, and more.
