She is passionate about implementing asset-based and community-driven approaches in culturally relevant and responsive pedagogies across interdisciplinary fields.
At the UMSL COE Geospatial Design Lab, she finds ways to integrate skills needed to be a ‘literate citizen’ in this century (technology, writing, global awareness, growth mindset, and geospatial and computational thinking) into course content. Her day job is working as an instructional designer for Google.
