Work-based learning is my passion! I love connecting education and community/business partners with the goal of helping students better prepare for the future. I’ve seen the impact these connections have in the lives of students and business partners alike.
I feel strongly that we are only as good as the people we help in this work. I’ve had many opportunities to support fellow educators throughout my career and am excited to expand my network to include WBL professionals across the country. I’ve already met so many amazing people that are doing remarkable things. I hope to build a conduit where more people can connect and share ideas.
