What’s your favorite thing to do outside of work?

I love traveling and road trips!

What draws you to education?

I was drawn to education because I believe it plays a crucial role in economic and social mobility. Witnessing how education can empower individuals and communities inspired me to focus my career on researching and addressing disparities in educational opportunities and outcomes. I am passionate about using data to create inclusive learning environments and contributing to initiatives that promote access and success for all students.
