Tell us a bit about yourself

I figure this question can get kind of generic so I'll list some interesting points about myself. - Lover of libraries and trees - I love the smell of musty old books - Quirky yet bland all at the same time. - I like to boil water to calm myself - I count to 60 seconds every morning before getting out of bed - Strategic marketer with an emphasis on digital - Dreams to be the change I want to see in the world and wants to surround myself to keep me accountable

What is your role or interest in education technology?

After leaving TFA in 2008 and left jobless, I found myself in the advertising industry. Since then, I've been focused on strategic digital marketing/consulting and loved every moment of it. That being said, I have this inner void that I've been desperately needing to fill. I so, so believe in education and mentorship and while I can't say I've been the most passionate person since, I genuinely want to get back into it. With so much digital experience and now moving to SF working in the tech industry, I'd love to try and merge the two - bridging what makes me happy with what makes me fulfilled.

Just recently as I just found EdSurge and am signing up now!

Do you visit



I so, so strongly believe in the power of education and mentorship. I spent a few months out in NY for TFA but my time was cut short due to pneumonia and I've always wanted to get back into education.
