Erasma Beras-Monticciolo

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Erasma Beras-Monticciolo is a thought-leader, activist, co-founder and Executive Director of Power of Two, a home visiting organization that nurtures the inherent potential in every child and family–empowering them to transform their own lives and strengthen their communities. Erasma holds a B.A. from St. Johns University and an MPA from NYU Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Policy. Before joining Power of Two, Erasma’s work has taken her to remote areas in Guatemala where she partnered with local entrepreneurs to create a small business cooperative designed to help indigenous communities establish independent, sustainable businesses that improved their living conditions and stimulated their local economies.

Power of Two

Now with more than fifteen years of experience in the field, Erasma successfully established relationships with policymakers, community-based organizations, and social change groups to create partnerships and build support for a variety of programs serving low-income populations in New York City. Erasma serves on the board for both the New York Zero to Three Network (NYZTT) and the Citizens’ Committee for Children of New York (CCC). She is a 2019 Promising Ventures Fellow and a 2020 Aspen Institute Healthy Communities Fellow.

Dr. Kristin Bernard

ABC EXPERT AND RESEARCH PARTNER

Kristin is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at Stony Brook University. While in graduate school at University of Delaware, she played a key role in evaluating the efficacy of the ABC intervention, developed clinical expertise in the model, and assisted in dissemination efforts. Now she serves as a program consultant and lead researcher for Power of Two. Kristin is especially excited about the integration of science and practice at Power of Two. Not only is Power of Two using science to guide their selection and provision of services, but they are building the science by conducting cutting-edge research.
