I grew up in New York City, riding the subway, eating lots of pizza and loving being in a city kid. After college at the University of Michigan, I taught elementary school in New York City for a few years before moving to Boston where I received a Masters of Educational Psychology from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. I moved to DC after graduate school and happily found a great community of teachers, researchers, and school administrators. I continued to teach and do research for a few years until I returned to graduate school at the University of Maryland School of Social Work. In Baltimore, I dove into student activism and racial justice work in Baltimore City. Most recently, I provided in-home family therapy in Baltimore City as a clinical faculty instructor at the University of Maryland School of Social Work. As a social worker, I've worked in counseling services at Baltimore City Head Start and Johns Hopkins Adolescent Mood Disorders Clinic. I am passionate about social justice and building partnerships with families and communities in DC. Looking forward to supporting student health, wellness, advocacy and voice!
