Our Leadership Team

Two Birds was founded by two working parents.

JP Coakley

COO, Co-Founder

A DC native, JP draws on his experience as a regulatory auditor in the nuclear energy industry to work with local childcare industries and ensure compliance with licensing requirements. A minor in music and a passion in photography has driven his vision to include such enrichment activities as a priority at Two Birds.

JP met Kelsey in 2016 at Georgetown University while pursuing their MBA.

Kelsey Lents

CEO, Co-Founder

Kelsey's background in architecture, liberal arts, and business has driven Two Birds' emphasis on environment and interdisciplinary thinking as a core component of children's education. While studying at Georgetown, she welcomed her first child, an experience that motivated her to create a space and platform that empowered modern families by embracing both parents as professionals and primary caregivers.
