Program & Community Manager
There's hardly anything more rewarding than witnessing curiosity bloom, perseverance pay off, and a sense of belonging and purpose grow among youth and families, which is why I feel thrilled and privileged to support Salem's middle school pilot. For more than 10 years, I've walked alongside youth and families through a wide variety of roles within the Massachusetts education ecosystem: from serving as a City Year corps member in Dorchester to teaching math in Lawrence to fostering holistic youth development at Tenacity in Boston. I also bring experience from building a community-based startup focused on youth employment, as well as coordinating collective impact efforts among youth-and-family serving nonprofits in Boston. Matching my personal and professional pursuits, I hold a bachelor's degree in anthropology from Amherst College and a macro-oriented Masters of Social Work from Boston College.
