An educator, researcher, and social change agent, I am inspired by listening to and feeling the power of stories. I firmly believe that education research, policy, and practice must be informed by the expertise of educators and learners, and I know that sharing the stories of these experts is one of the most important ways to do so. As such, I strive to listen and bring attention to stories throughout my work and my life.

I graduated from Swarthmore College in 2010 with a B.A. in Educational Studies and Sociology & Anthropology and a secondary teaching certificate in Social Sciences for Pennsylvania. After graduation, I worked as a Stoneleigh Junior Fellow at Research for Action in Philadelphia. My opportunities as a Stoneleigh Fellow and as an undergraduate allowed me to actively participate in the field of education and understand it as a tool for social change, helping me to engage in critical thinking, pedagogical development, and hands-on practice. I am excited to continue in this work as a researching practitioner who helps to develop social change agents among our youth.
