Clubs and Organizations:
Experienced in school operations management, education, and local government, I joined the MBA program at Duke University - The Fuqua School of Business to increase my toolkit for generating solutions to challenges in the social impact space. Post MBA, I plan to work on teams improving long-term strategy and operations for social impact-based clients by building efficient practices and inspiring innovation that expands impact.
Prior to Fuqua, I worked as a director of school operations in residence and academic operations manager within Achievement First in Brooklyn, NY whereI was responsible for project and information system management, state and school-based assessment coordination, data analytics, technology management, strategic planning, high school transition counseling, external high school/college partnerships, and family communication.
My career began as a special assistant and correspondence director in the administration of former Washington, D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty which challenged thoughts on education reform efforts and drew critical national attention to the issue of educational inequities. I further built her foundation for leadership in the education space by teaching elementary English Language Arts at traditional public and public charter schools in Philadelphia and New York City before transitioning into education operations management.
A native of Belpre, Ohio, a small town in the Appalachian Valley, I is a first-generation college graduate with a B.A. from Howard University and an M. Ed. from Arcadia University.
