Hampton Consulting is thrilled to announce our newest addition to our staff! Join us in welcoming Senior Consultant, Alaina Dague, to the Hampton Consulting team!
Alaina recently completed a national public policy fellowship. In this role, she coordinated the Proud Michigan Educator campaign—a state initiative to acknowledge, celebrate, and elevate the work of Michigan teachers—as well as additional policy work on Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), focusing on parent and community engagement. Prior to her fellowship, Alaina taught middle school English here in Detroit for several years. “I feel especially privileged to have been able to loop throughout middle school with my students. This experience—being in the classroom every day with my students—reinforced my commitment to ensuring that all youth have access and opportunity.” While teaching, Alaina was recognized for her contributions to student growth with the Michigan Association of Public School Academics’ Quantum Leap Award. “This award was and is a testament to the work of my students throughout the school year—as holistic, intelligent, amazing students.”
Alaina earned her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Alma College and also holds a Master of Arts in Educational Studies from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. In addition, she serves as Vice Chair of the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network-Detroit, is a member of the Executive Team of the Detroit Young Professionals, and is active in the Junior League of Detroit.
