I am a passionate student seeking to make meaningful change in the P-16 education arena. I have several years of experience in educational leadership and governance. I have served as member of the Tennessee Higher Education Commission, University of Tennessee (UT) President's Budget Advisory Group, and Academic Affairs and Student Success Committee of the UT Board of Trustees.
In addition to my work in Tennessee education, I have also served as co-chair of the Downtown Task-force for Mayor Andy Berke’s Chattanooga Forward Initiative--a working group of civic innovators dedicated to making downtown Chattanooga more vibrant and inclusive.
I received my B.S. in Political Science from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in 2015, and completed an MSc in Education at Oxford in 2016. Professionally, I am interested cultivating meaningful relationships between P-16 educational institutions and their surrounding communities, particularly focusing on matters of racial inequality.
