Dr. Rene Rochester - Phat Star Learning - 2018

Dr. René Rochester is the CEO and founder of Phat Star® Learning,  formed over 10 years ago to serve urban youth, youth workers and impoverished communities. In our formative years we spent much of our time training inner-city urban youth workers.

As the designer of the Kids Across America Kaleo Program, Dr. Rene had the opportunity to serve thousands of youth workers from around the country for over 10 years. During recent years, she has been very concerned with the state of education in our country especially among African American youth.


Dr. Annita D’Amico has a passion for encouraging individuals of all ages to walk in spiritual health and personal growth. She believes youth especially need guidance in understanding their need for authentic community in this world of Twitter encounters. D’Amico has worked as a group therapist and director of a young women’s Group Home where she incorporated a whole-family outreach program.

She is Director of Common Care Coaching at Cornerstone Medical and co-facilitator for Phat Star® Learning. She serves as an adjunct professor and has written a series of “Caring for You” articles, and is currently co-authoring The Culturally Wired Brain: Your Mother Tongue of Learning.

D’Amico holds a B.S. and M.S. from the University of Missouri and an Ed.D. from Regent University.
