I am motivated by the idea that “it is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men,” and my goal is to make a positive impact on society by catalyzing an international shift in the way education works.
I am an advocate for education reform, servant leadership, and authentic school administration. In addition to my experience at four independent schools, I’ve been a communications consultant for organizations such as Health for America, Higher Expectations for Racine County Youth, and The Chester Fund for Education and the Arts. I am a member of the Aim High Young Leaders Board and an MBA candidate at Haas School of Business.
At Khan Lab School, I lead marketing strategy, content, design, internal community and communications, and external community and public relations. Our team believes that young people are capable of far more than society currently recognizes, and we create and test learning experiences to share with the world.
Diversity and inclusion are a priority for me in the workplace, and it’s important to me that the people around me feel known, acknowledged, and celebrated. I’ve worked closely with underserved communities in Chicago, West Philadelphia, Kiserian (Kenya), Lusaka (Zambia), and my hometown. It’s important to me that the work I do has meaning and a positive impact. I value community, compassion, creativity, decisiveness, empathy, equality, honesty, and joy.
I’m always growing, always curious, and always seeking a stronger narrative.
I have advanced skills in a wide range of software and media, including Adobe InDesign, Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop, Audacity, Blackbaud, Blackboard, Canon and Nikon DSLR cameras, Constant Contact, CSS, Dreamweaver, Facebook Ads & Pages, Final Cut Pro, Flickr, FTP, Google AdWords, Google Analytics, Google Drive & Suite, Haiku, HootSuite, HTML, iLife, Instagram, Joomla, LinkedIn, Mac OS X, MailChimp, Microsoft Office, Moodle, Phanfare, Pinterest, PHP, SilverFast, SmugMug, Tumblr, TweetDeck, Twitter, Vimeo, WhippleHill, and WordPress.
