About Excel Together West Virginia

Excel Together West Virginia is an ambitious education and workforce initiative that brings together many different entities across the state, working together towards common goals. A description of Excel Together's approach is given here.

Excel Together West Virginia is a program of SeeMore Impact Labs, a national non-profit based out of Boulder, Colorado. The initiative grows out of SeeMore's work across the nation in schools, colleges, adult education, workforce development, and employee upskilling. SeeMore is contributing free resources in coach training, participant outreach, marketing, and other areas.

Excel Together West Virginia started quietly in 2021 with the state's community and technical colleges accepting the CSM Certificate as key college math credit. The availability of college credit brought in the West Virginia Office of Adult Education, and this in turn brought in Workforce West Virginia and business association participants. We're now in full operational mode.

Participating organizations

The initiative owes much to many forward-looking organizations in the state:

David Goldberg


As Co-Director of Excel Together WV, David focuses mainly on business development and expanding the scope of the initiative's reach and mission.

David is a molecular biologist who was among the first to transfer a gene back into a higher organism (curing fruit flies of alcoholism!). He then "went bad" as a serial entrepreneur in 20 different companies and as many industries and technologies (geophysics, image indexing, consumer electronics, medical diagnostics, and more). He has a BS from Yale University, a PhD from Caltech, and completed postdoctoral work at Harvard and University of Cambridge in molecular biology, with additional postdoctoral work in artificial intelligence from the University of Colorado, Boulder.

David also serves as CEO of SeeMore Impact Labs, a national non-profit based in Boulder, CO that is running the national Excel Together initiative. David served as the initial co-architect of the CSM Course, the initial software developer of the CSM software platform, and is on the trash take-out rotation.

David is married to Marty Goldberg, the co-Founder of SeeMore Impact Labs (whose name is a hat-tip to her father), and has two children and three granddaughters in Boulder, who keep him young (well, maybe just younger...).

Miriam Goldberg


As Co-Director, Miriam does a little bit of everything, and has the primary responsibility for Excel Together West Virginia operations and technology.

With a BA from Yale in Computational Social Sciences and a masters in Sociology from Columbia, she brings perspectives from psychology, sociology, and related fields, as well as experience in data analysis and experimental design. Miriam also serves as Chief Education Officer of SeeMore Impact Labs, a national non-profit based in Boulder, CO that is running the national Excel Together initiative. She has served as co-architect of much of the pedagogy of SeeMore's products, is the fount of knowledge of CSM implementation, and also works on the business development team.

Miriam has 2 elementary aged daughters who are champing at the bit until they're old enough to take CSM.
