Building bright, expansive futures for all people in education. I am also an artist and a healer.

Designing and co-facilitating the Social Justice Education Anti-Racism Seminar alongside Qiu Fogarty! Starting that initiative was one of the most intentional and exciting initiatives I've been a part of within CIC.

I am currently working remotely from Minnesota, so you'll find me on Zoom! I will return to campus for important events and gatherings from time to time.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I love listening to music, baking, and making art. You can usually find me by the water or enjoying the sunshine with my dog Pekoe.
