A little about me

I’m currently an associate partner with Bellwether Education Partners and a 50CAN National Voices Fellow. Prior to joining Bellwether in March 2019, I worked as a senior data scientist at the Kentucky Center for Statistics (KYSTATS) and served as a Harvard Strategic Data Project Fellow at the Kentucky Department of Education.

I got my start in education as a fifth-grade teacher and Teach For America corps member. That experience propelled me into education policy research and analysis through roles at ConnCAN and TNTP before moving to Kentucky in 2015.

I’m a proud graduate of Trinity College and Bethel University. When I’m not working on education issues, I read voraciously, coach lacrosse, and very much enjoy bourbon.

I strive to be curious, not judgmental.
