Her passion for educating diverse populations flourished early and often: as an advocate for differently abled students in undergrad; an ELL teacher at home and abroad; a writing coach to patients in the Memorial Sloan Kettering Visible Ink program; a volunteer with the non-profit 826NYC; and as an English and creative writing teacher to her beloved middle and high school students in the New York City public schools.
