What are people most surprised to learn about you?
I am very organized when it comes to my personal library. Thanks to a friend, I have an excel sheet I use to catalog and keep track of which books are being borrowed.
What’s your favorite thing to do outside of work?
Snuggling up with my cat and favorite buddy, Serafina. And whenever I can, I love to catch up with my friends and family over Facetime!
Why are you passionate about working at BELONG Partners?
BELONG Partners mission and vision to fold in critical social emotional learning, making SEL alongside other restorative practices an integral part of classrooms, schools, districts, and communities resonates deeply with me.
