About Me:

I have an undergraduate degree in Philosophy from NYU and have since worked in the education departments at both Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York and SFJAZZ in San Francisco. I am currently pursuing my multiple subjects credential and Master of Arts Degree in Education at Mills College. I am particularly interested in arts education as a means for social justice in urban schools. I have trained in music, dance, theater and visual arts from elementary through high school and have a unique understanding of the importance of the arts in the life of a growing young person.

Exhibit change by:

I am participating in the IMOW Young Women Speaking the Economy project, which I was drawn to because I am interested in with equality and equity for women in both collegial treatment and opportunity. I have seven years of experience working in the United States, since receiving my Bachelor's Degree, and I have found that gender discrimination still prevalent even in progressive cities such as New York and San Francisco. I would like to talk to colleagues about how to speak up with issues of equality and form specific strategies about how to proceed, should an undesirable situation arise. How can we teach our young women growing up how to break through the so-called "glass ceiling"?

I'm passionate about:

Equity in education, arts education for all, protecting human rights, protecting the natural environment, secure funding for the performing arts,
