Jared T. Ward

Executive Director, Be Free Stories

After watching the progress of Brian's solo work with Be Free Stories from the sidelines in its early years, Jared reached out to offer consulting support in 2019. After several months of working together to chart the strategic direction of Be Free Stories and creating and executing plans to amplify the brand, Brian asked Jared to join on as the Executive Director as we navigate the next chapter of Be Free Stories! 

Originally from Boston, Ma. Jared moved to Georgia to pursue a Master's in Education from the University of Georgia, and then relocated to the Raleigh-Durham area for work. He specializes in human and organizational development, and his role at Be Free Stories taps into both of those talents! He works to make sure Be Free Stories continues to develop and grow in its brand, curriculum, and impact on the world!
