Our Story

We are the Co-Founders of thePLAYCE and we are so excited to meet you!

We became fast and furious friends since 2018 through our shared passion for community health and engagement. In the spring of 2021, we began having intentional conversations about counteracting the impact of the covid-19 pandemic and how to cultivate collective joy within the communities to which we belong. Numerous conversations, research, and focus groups later, thePLAYCE was born. In some ways, we always knew we’d end up here…working together to make something bigger than ourselves and having tons of fun along the way. So let's get the party started!
