Current positions:
I completed my Masters in education at Fordham University in 2014. I am currently an instructional coach & teacher at Equitas Academy Middle School in Los Angeles, CA. (where she teachers the 8th grade)

One piece of advice you wish someone had given you in your years at IC:
Never pass up an opportunity to go to the farmers’ market. (Or, in other words, allow yourself to slow down and enjoy yourself.)

Favorite Honors Seminar and why:
Microhistories with Karin Breuer! It was such a compelling and challenging lens through which to see the world. And, of course, it didn’t hurt that Professor Breuer was hilarious and lovely.

One word that sums up your university experience:
It’s cruel of you to limit an English major to one word! My best attempt: inspirational.


We’re always looking for interesting students to highlight in our Spotlight series.
