Paige Williams was born and raised just outside of Detroit, Michigan, and studied psychology and comparative human development at the University of Chicago. She specialized in culture and community and worked in the UChicago Social Justice Neuroscience and Psychology Laboratory. Prior to Advance Illinois, Paige worked on a research team at Cuyahoga Community College that designed interventions to address the achievement gap and taught at the Exploration School. She credits her passion for public education to her parents, who were administrators with Detroit Public Schools.
