Favorite Quote: Be the change you wish to see in the world.  

What I most love about the DRC: I love working in the DRC because I am proud to be a part of a team of like-minded people who’s focus is seeking equity for our students.

What is one thing I do that the DRC: I am a co-founder of Social Connections, a group that meets monthly to create a safe-space for students to socialize and have fun. While I am no longer hosting the groups I am happy that it continues to thrive!

One thing I have learned over the pandemic: Anything is possible, you just have to think outside the box.

Something else about me: I am an avid traveler (pre-COVID) and have been to 28 countries and counting. I love getting off the beaten path and learning about different cultures. So far my favorite country to visit was Vietnam.
