I’m most proud of building a sustainable back-office infrastructure and helping to open new schools (creating more than 1,000 new high quality seats for children) at KIPP Atlanta.
I love coming to work because I get to work with people who truly believe in centering the voice of the learner in our work and endeavor to impact the most lives as possible.
Hold true to your integrity and show up as your authentic self every day.
When I was 7, I changed my aspiration from wanting to be a lawyer to a judge because I wanted to be the decision-maker.
Besides home, lying on a beach when the sun is at its peak.
The sound of children playing.
Spring. I love listening to birds chirp, seeing flowers bloom, and feeling the progressing heat.

For our future, I imagine a world where all children and their families have the resources to live thriving, safe, healthy, and curious lives.
