In my current role as Training Program Associate, I apply a broad range of skills I’ve developed from over eight years as an educator and equity leader. My focus is creating an equitable and welcoming environment for nonprofit leaders to gain the knowledge they need to fulfill their mission. Before joining Propel in June 2022, I was a teacher in the Twin Cities. I received my MA in Teaching from Concordia University, St. Paul. In my free time I enjoy exploring trails around Minnesota’s many state parks and lakes with my dog, Billie, and hanging out at home with my cat, Ellie.
