Happy Anniversary October Escapees

We are so excited about the breadth of experience and fresh perspectives of Escapees. For example, this month Terri celebrates 19 years, Kathy celebrates 15 years and Chris celebrates his first anniversary.


Terri Hammond

Terri became an Escapee 19 years ago and she never looked back, and neither did we. Terri has worked her magic at frontline support, management of the Finance team and, now her dream job, Trainer Extraordinaire. Seriously, Terri is in constant training mode, sharing her enthusiasm for and deep knowledge of Escape Online. Terri almost single-handily runs the monthly webinar program - preparing, writing, showcasing and performing more than 90% of Escape webinars.

Terri is one of the most recognizable faces of Escape through her webinars and Top 10 presentations. She’s brings a little bit of her personality into everything she does!

Kathy Carlson

Kathy celebrates a milestone 15 years at Escape. Just like Terri, Kathy came to us from a district office, with a wealth of school business know-how. Kathy also began as frontline support, but moved into Project Management early in her Escape career and has been on the road ever since. Kathy was on the ground floor with the first Escape Online COE implementation at Placer COE and she continues trailblazing with Imperial and Butte COE implementations, as well as more districts in Alameda County.

Kathy is one of our road-warriors and is second only to Terri in being the face of Escape to our customers!
~ Ramona Marshall, President

Chris Power

Chris is a behind-the-scenes guy, but he is making his mark in his first year at Escape. Chris wasted no time becoming a first-rate Escapee. He dove straight into programming, day one. First, he worked with Chad and Jennifer Escamilla on the Employee Online portal, but has since expanded his resume to include Finance activities, like the new Direct Payment direct edit and import feature. 

Happy first anniversary, Chris! We are so lucky to have you on the Finance team. I can’t wait to see all the great functionality that you will develop for our customers. Thank you for your dedication, thoroughness and creativity.
