As the Director of the Hiatt Center, I work with students to develop leadership skills, engage with the community, and promote social justice. I also lead our efforts to build mutually beneficial, sustainable partnerships between Beaver and the greater community that deepen student learning and promote a socially just world. This work is particularly exciting at Beaver where our students are developing cutting-edge design and innovation skills that can be used to make our world a better place. Opportunities at this intersection of technology and social justice elevate our work in the community beyond a traditional service model. In addition, I am an advisor to Upper School students and coach the girls’ varsity lacrosse team. This is an incredible platform to help young people reach their full potential.
Prior to Beaver, I evaluated youth programs at Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston and dedicated a year of service through the Massachusetts Promise Fellowship, an AmeriCorps program that delivers key resources to young people. I am originally from Central New York where I studied government and sociology at St. Lawrence University. I received a Master’s of Science in Nonprofit Management from Northeastern University.
