Tell us a bit about yourself

I recently graduated from the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management at UC Santa Barbara, where I worked on Smarty Pants - a Master's these project through the Eco-Entreprenuership program. I am a Bay Area native that is passionate about business and the environment. I am dedicated to making a positive impact on society through entreprenuership endeavors.

What is your role or interest in education technology?

Being married to a teacher, I witnessed the countless hours on nights and weekends developing engaging lesson plans. I also saw the challenges that teachers face aligning content to new and changing standards. I believe that technology can be used to alleviate these pains, and encourage the younger generation to excel in STEM subjects.

Do you currently subscribe EdSurge's newsletters for the latest news and info on the edtech industry?

I am a co-founder of Smarty Pants, a startup that develops interactive media to teach science to primary grades, and uses environmental contexts to engage students and inspire stewardship in youth.
