“The moment we choose to love we begin to move against domination, against oppression. The moment we choose to love we begin to move towards freedom, to act in ways that liberate ourselves and others. That action is the testimony of love as the practice of freedom.” - bell hooks

Over the past two decades in the field, I’ve remained committed to providing relevant, impactful, and empathetic support to leaders, teachers and students. My work across diverse settings is united by my driving mission to build liberatory, critical learning experiences.  

Here’s what brings me energy – applying my creativity in learning design to support equitable learning outcomes for young people and adults, writing sustaining curriculum that lifts students up and takes culture into account, facilitating customized professional learning and coaching for educators and leaders, and teaching about equity and justice.

I love what I do, and I lead with love, compassion, and lived experience that’s grounded in my collaborations with educators and my work with young people. If you want to energize your learning community while learning, co-creating, and growing together. Let’s talk!
