I leverage human centered design to tackle complex projects and solve problems. Building Relationships is at the heart of my work.
I work to ignite creative confidence and drive innovation in others. Intentional design and authentic connection can improve the learning experience for all, at any age.
I have over 20 years experience as an Early Education Teacher, School Leader, Mentor, Workshop Facilitator, Learning Experience Designer and Coach.
I have spent the past few years utilizing design thinking to start schools, create technology solutions in personalized learning, drive change and shift mindsets in school leaders and government agencies. I've worked at Google, AltSchool and the Stanford d.school.
I am currently working with the San José Public Library working to expand learning opportunities out of the school day. I oversee and advise strategy, engagement efforts, strategic partnerships, and educational pilots.
I'm available for creative project coaching, workshop design, consultation and facilitation.
