Throughout my professional career, the learning and development of others has always been a passion of mine. 

I graduated with high distinction from the University of Michigan with a BA in English and a minor in French and Francophone Studies. After graduation, I earned my Master of Art in Teaching degree from National-Louis University in Chicago, IL.

I started my career as high school English teacher, where I was able to put into practice the education theory and principles of instructional design that I studied in graduate school.  From there, I moved into higher education administration positions at both Northwestern University and The University of Chicago, where I was able to hone my project management skills by overseeing several different education and outreach programs. In 2015, I moved into corporate learning and development when I accepted my current position as a senior associate in the Learning Studio at PwC.
