Title and Organization:
Carolyn Davies Lynch leads operations at Rocketship Public Schools, a fast-growing national network of public charter elementary schools. She manages all operational staff across the network’s 18 schools, overseeing campus operations including nutrition programs, information technology, facilities maintenance, and transportation. Carolyn has served at Rocketship for over seven years in a variety of roles. Prior to taking on her current role, she founded Rocketship’s Strategy & Scalability team, working to define organizational strategy, build scalable systems supporting growth, and lead development efforts. Over her time at Rocketship, the network has grown from serving one thousand students in one city to providing high-quality schools to over eight thousand students across five regions. Carolyn came to Rocketship from The Boston Consulting Group, where she led strategic work for organizations ranging from school districts to public health foundations to multinational corporations. She earned an undergraduate degree in Applied Math & Economics from Harvard University, and a Masters of Education and an MBA from Stanford University. Carolyn’s family drives her passion for education reform; her mother comes from a long line of educators, and her father was first in his family to attend college. Carolyn lives in San Carlos, California, with her husband Jack and their two rambunctious preschool-aged daughters, Skye and Sojourner. She is a Fellow of the 20th class of the Pahara-Aspen Education Fellowship and a member of the Aspen Global Leadership Network.
