Meet The Team Behind Challenge Island

Shronda Boatwright

What inspired you to become a Challenge Island Franchise Owner?

I’ve always enjoyed working with kids and wanted to combine my love for kids with my interest in education and technology. I’m also very interested in exposing underrepresented groups to STEM and STEAM concepts and careers.

Tell us about your professional background.

I have worked in the IT industry for over 18 years in a number of different roles. Most recently, I have been working as a software product manager, helping to deliver business solutions to customers.

What have you enjoyed most about starting your Challenge Island business?

I’ve enjoyed watching the kids interact with the each other during the challenges and to feel a sense of accomplishment when they complete the challenges. I also love that I get to make the decisions that will impact my business directly.
