What makes you the best person for your role?
As a former English Language Arts (ELA) teacher, I have experience planning and creating ELA content and curriculum, using digital platforms and differentiation to meet the needs of various learning abilities, and, most importantly, helping young people realize their full potential in both private and public school settings. I am excited to use my communication skills, love of content creation, and teacher savvy to best serve the entrepreneurs at IW; they all have something unique to bring to the table, and I will ensure that they have the resources, guidance, and confidence to turn their ideas into reality.
What is your favorite thing about working with startups?
It’s energizing to be surrounded by so many passionate, driven individuals who think and create in different ways! Each startup presents a new learning opportunity and an exciting glimpse into our future.
What is your favorite thing about living and working in Pittsburgh?
Pittsburgh has so much to offer. Whether you have lived here all of your life or are just visiting, there is something for everyone all year round. Personally, I love the food scene and sense of community.
Where can we find you outside of work?
I love to read, travel, and spend time with my family.
