I’m thrilled to be a part of Thrive Washington. In this capacity, I am responsible for Thrive’s daily grants management tasks and providing technical assistance to our grantees. Before joining Thrive, I administered international education and exchange programs funded by USAID and the Department of State. These programs focused primarily on adult education, so I’m excited to learn more about early education because that’s where it all starts. I’m particularly excited about Thrive’s work to ensure equal access to education for children across all socioeconomic groups because my volunteer experience has focused on empowering immigrant communities.
A recent transplant from Washington, D.C., I’m looking forward to exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest scenery and expending too much emotional energy cheering on my Washington Nationals from afar.
