My Story

Originally from Chicagoland, I moved west to study poetry at the University of Puget Sound. I completed my Master’s of Communication in Digital Media at the University of Washington in 2020.

I’m obsessed with learning what’s possible, understanding the decisions we make, and helping organizations and teams realize their amazing potential.
