A Bit About Me
Black/African-centered work with a particular focus on STEM curriculum & program development. Strong commitment to social justice, culturally relevant and congruent outreach, engagement, enrichment, and education.
I am a former Air Force Brat (dependent). My family is from Bermuda and Alabama, and I grew up in Alaska. I bring the total of these facts and experiences to the table as I pursue my community agenda of advocacy, support services, serial board membership, volunteerism, and education.
