What motivates you?
I am motivated by opportunities to positively influence the lives of others and make a meaningful impact through my work. I am very fortunate that my current role as Director of Early Grade Success Initiatives at Helios Education Foundation and my involvement with Candelen enable me to pursue my passions every day.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
When I was young I spent hours outside capturing and identifying insects and wanted to be an Entomologist someday. Although I still really enjoy science (I now have mixed feelings about bugs), my current profession couldn’t be any more different!
