What I Do
I help young people take charge of their futures by working with them (and the adults who care about them) to build evidence-based, scalable, and sustainable youth development programs.
Right now, I'm with the San Diego Workforce Partnership where I coordinate training opportunities for the youth involved in CONNECT2Careers. Since I joined the program, our work's reach has grown more than three-fold.
Where I Come From
My background includes work in student leadership programs, quantitative and qualitative research, and a brief stint in the world of marketing.
With the California Association of Directors of Activities/California Association of Student Leaders (CADA/CASL), I helped young people plan leadership development opportunities for their peers. We served about 14,000 students each year.
With Pitzer College, I supported a research project understanding the influence of businesses in Panamanian politics. I also worked for Pepperdine University on a research team to study the strategies of successful online educators.
At Wheelz, I helped a technology startup enter the college market with on-the-ground marketing support.
What I Studied
At Pitzer College, I earned a Bachelor's degree in Organizational Studies—an interdisciplinary program that studied the psychological, sociological, anthropological, political, economic, and administrative components of human teams.
While there, I completed graduate-level coursework in management and in education.
Currently, I'm studying leadership as a fellow with RISE San Diego's Urban Leadership program and the University of San Diego.
