How does this work?

I'm a dynamic and adaptive thought leader with 12+ years of experience nurturing diverse or complex relationships, building and scaling programs, and making valuable connections between data, people, and technology to engage, inform, and inspire. My strength is identifying durable and transferrable skills and competencies to inform sustainable educational products and services that break down barriers to build communities of life-long learners. I excel in advising and consulting a diverse range of folks on a variety of topics in teaching, learning, and the world of work. My colleagues would describe me as a results-driven change manager who is known for successfully elevating ideas and motivating teams by balancing strategic planning and tactical execution to enable data-informed decision making, enhance quality and performance, and achieve long-term goals.
