Ana C. Lewis, our Vice President of Community-Based Services in Florida and Louisiana, has been serving children and families for over 17 years. In her position, Ana provides management oversight of juvenile justice, early head start, prevention and family, and wraparound services.
Before joining the Eckerd Connects team, Ana served the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) for almost 7 years in Gainesville, FL. In her 10 years at Eckerd Connects, she directly managed two Re-Entry programs in South Florida before relocating to Orlando, FL in 2013 to launch the now well-established Project Bridge program offering transition services to youth in Central and South Florida. Ana’s extensive knowledge of the juvenile justice system and its leaders, and her recent professional expansion to other service arenas, brings great value to Eckerd Connects as she strives to ensure that our children and families in Florida and Louisiana have the opportunity to succeed.
Born and raised in South Florida, Ana received her undergraduate degree in psychology from the University of Florida. She lives in the Orlando area with her husband and son.
