More About Me
I love to garden, play with my dog, bake bread, make kombucha, and collect vintage books. I’m really interested in educational equity and gain a lot of personal fulfillment from helping people perform well. I believe that education is vital to success and am committed to making it more accessible for students who present different abilities.
