I attended Hamilton College where I studied Biology and Government and graduated in 2012. While in college I sang in both the college choir and an all-female a cappella group. I also had the opportunity to study abroad in Tanzania where I designed and conducted an independent study project. After graduating, I moved back to the Boston area and I am currently a student at Suffolk University Law School.
I have had the privilege of working with students in both academic and non-academic settings. I was a tutor for second grade students while in college and watched my students grow into confident individuals with increased reading skills. I also worked as a sailing instructor for several years at a junior sailing club where I taught introductory racing, basic navigation, and basic sailing to kids ages 8-14.
I strongly believe that all students have the ability to succeed in school with hard work and dedication. Much of that capacity for success comes from students believing in themselves, and I hope to encourage students to be confident in their ability to succeed in the classroom and in life. I have a passion and enthusiasm for learning that I want to share with others. By strengthening academic development, students can also strengthen personal development and I hope to use my experiences to help students be successful and reach their goals.
