Teach For America

Corps Member

I am a sociologist interested in making a difference in the lives of children. It is my hope that one day all children will receive the quality education that they deserve.

Grand Valley State University

Bachelor's of Science, Sociology

One of my first sociology professors taught me the Latin root word meaning of the word education. It is, "educa" which means "to lead out." I became fascinated by the idea that education is meant to lead people out of poverty, racism, and classism and free people from any "isms" that they may have been born into. Education brings freedom. So, I hope to never stop learning.

A Girl On The Run

I am not a serious athlete, but over the last four years I have developed a passion for running. I ran my first half marathon this year! I am a coach with Girl's On The Run--an organization aimed at inspiring girls to lead confident, healthy, and active lives.

"It is not the critic who counts. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena...who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best in the end knows triumph and high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly." - Teddy Roosevelt

Amazing Grace

Jonathan Kozol's conversations with children and families are poignant, chilling, and graceful. Amazing Grace is one of my favorites.

"You have to remember that for this little boy whom you have met, his life is just as important, to him, as your life is to you No matter how insufficient or how shabby it may seem to some, it is the only one he has" (Kozol 1995: 78-79).

National American Miss

Choreographer and Emcee

National American Miss is an organization that inspires girls ages 4-18 to grow as confident, intelligent, and poised young women. My role was to lead "how-to" sessions on public speaking, formal presentations, and interviews. Over four years, I interacted with thousands of girls with intent to inspire them to make goals, work hard, and recognize potential.
