Brief Bio: 

Connected learning aspirant with a passion for and extensive experience teaching and serving first-generation students of color. Seeking opportunities to advocate for and deliver relevant, affordable post-secondary and lifelong learning opportunities for youth and adult learners from under-served and under-resourced communities.  I want to disrupt higher ed and career credentialing to ensure that students like the ones I have served throughout my career can be engaged citizens earning a living wage and creating the change they want to see in the world.  I want to curate playlists and issues badges that have currency for these young people and with employers and educators.
