Education Director of Community-based Services
After spending part of my career at a local community development corporation, my desire to return to the education field led me to IUPUI to complete a Transition to Teaching program. I then taught Social Studies to high schoolers in Indianapolis Public Schools. When my daughter was born prematurely and I was not able to return to the classroom full-time, I started working with Brightlane Learning. It combines my passion for education and community development and I love the work we do.
I’ve been privileged and lucky to attend amazing public schools from kindergarten to graduate school, but I’ve also seen how that access is not equal across the board. Much of what I really hope to make a difference in with my role at Brightlane Learning is making sure families are able to access the best education available to them and their children and help fill in the gaps.
