I have a background in early childhood and elementary education, TEFL instruction for children and adults, humanities and, liberal studies instruction.

I have an ongoing thirst for knowledge and personal growth. I bring this to professional environments and look forward to encouraging the same in my coworkers, clients and, peers.

I am a specialist in support for teachers, parents and students dealing with educational differences and behavioral, emotional or physical challenges.

I have a passion for community building, event organization and, outreach using a well developed set of constructivist skills.

I am a champion for underserved communities and believe in fostering self -agency for all.

I bring my personal experience as an abuse survivor to everything I do. I am committed to nonviolent conflict resolution, inclusive best practice and constructivism in action.

I believe in transparency and honesty, fostering community and thinking outside all the boxes.

I shine when supporting students and have extensive experience in event planning and execution. Fostering a community of support and honoring difference is my overall purpose.

I have a PhD in humanities and cultural studies, specializing in disability theory and best praxis for reform.

As a person with a disability I am particularly well versed in support across the spectrum of ability and strive, always for new pathways of inclusion.

I have an MFA in creative writing and cultural anthropology.

I am TEFL certified.
