My goal is to make learning accessible in communities with limited or no access to “professional” services. The objective is not simply to teach, but to learn and grow together. Expertise is not solely measured by one’s capacity to retain and repeat learned material. At the end of every session, I want to empower learners to become experts in their own lived experiences.

One key area of focus in my work is adult education: from college/university student groups to corporate teams to non-profit boards, we’re often taught to rely on the “experts” to tell us what to do and when/how to do it. I want to challenge you to build your skills and capacity, to become confident in your knowledge, and to own your story. I hope to pursue graduate studies in this area, and to provide more specialized services as a community educator.
