My Greatest Supporters

My community of friends and family have shown me love, grace, celebrated my small wins, and held me accountable every step of the way.

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

My favorite SMC memory is simply spending time with the strong friendships I cultivated in my cohort. I feel so grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from such strong, capable and conscientious individuals.

My Next Chapter

For the 2021-2022 scholastic year, I'll be working with the Berkeley Unified School District and continuing to develop my practice as a School Psychologist. I'm looking forward to incorporating social justice, trust, support and healing at the crux of my work.

Favorite Quote

"The classroom, with all its limitations, remains a location of possibility. In that field of possibility we have the opportunity to labor for freedom, to demand of ourselves and our comrades, an openness of mind and heart that allows us to face reality even as we collectively imagine ways to move beyond boundaries, to transgress. This is education as the practice of freedom."
