I am a graduate of Emerson College and Brandies University's Heller School. I have a BS in International Politics, a BFA in Documentary Journalism and Literature, and a Master's Degree in Humanitarian Aid and Conflict Resolution. I served in Peace Corps Morocco from 2012 to 2015 as a Youth Development and Public Health volunteer, and beyond my studies, I have worked throughout the world in conflict zones and natural disasters for various humanitarian organizations, including Norwegian Refugee Council, Mercy Corps and the United Nations. My time in Morocco is where teaching and tutoring begin for me, and while I have taught a wide variety of subjects to a wide range of students, I've found that one of one teaching/tutoring is where I am most able to impart my experience in writing, editing, journalism and literature to students. Having worked with a diverse and international spectrum of colleagues, team mates and students, I've found my teaching style focused on connecting with the student in order to understand their areas of strength; identifying our strengths enables us to best target where we want to make improvements. I strongly believe that having the tools and confidence to be a strong writer results in confidence and heightened abilities in every other subject. In my free time, I love to run, climb mountains, cook, write and read.
