I am an educator and advocate for youth. My entire career has centered around building students up into empowered contributors to society. There is nothing more beautiful to me than to help a young individual realize his or her potential. I pursued national board certification and a graduate degree in brain-based instruction in order to best serve the schools I have supported.

My early experience as a Peace Corps volunteer opened my eyes to the disparity of global resources, and to the importance of protecting nature. In this current political and environmental climate, I feel it is my duty to channel my experience and passion into making this world a better place –in a big way. Let’s get to work!


I have always enjoyed building and creating, especially projects that have a greater purpose. So, when Jenna and I first discussed the idea of putting our heads together and building something that would change communities, I was all in.

My background as an attorney keeps me ever aware of the civil climate and the existence of disparities based on race, gender, religion, and sexual orientation. As a woman of color and mother of a young daughter, I know I can’t just dream of a better world for her. I have to help build it.
