Development & Communications Associate

Why I work at Impact on Education:
For most of my childhood, I saw myself becoming a music teacher. I was born into a family full of successful and lifelong educators, with myself being the next in line. Coming into my Junior year of high school, I felt stuck within a system I hadn’t even entered yet. Knowing I still had a passion for education, I shifted my focus into how I could work to support educators like my mom and sister, plus students like myself. Impact on Education’s core values are at the center of what is needed to drive public education forward. 

What makes me smile:
A great podcast, an even better meal with friends, and the chance to travel somewhere new. 

Favorite teacher:
Kelly Kline was my middle school choir director and music teacher. Kelly brings out such a sense of joy and purpose in all of her students carefully guiding them with intention and empathy. In times of uncertainty, Kelly fostered my love of music introduced to me by my grandmother. Kelly always knew what to say, and if she didn’t, she had the right song. She is a brilliant educator and an even better mentor. She introduced me to a world of creativity and instilled life long lessons of grit and grace. 

More about me:
I come from a small college town in Newark, Delaware where I eventually grew into a Blue Hen! I came out to Colorado to pursue my M.A. from the University of Denver where I studied International and Intercultural Communication. Colorado has brought me a wonderful sense of adventure that I can’t wait to continue exploring. Starting my career with IOE was the perfect next step and I’m so excited to grow with BVSD!
