About Me

I've enjoyed over a decade of teaching PreK-12th grade, coaching educators,and designing award winning educational programs and products. I currently have a teaching credential in PreK-12th grade multiple subjects and two Master’s in Educational Leadership and Curriculum & Instruction with Multicultural Contexts. Teaching on the Navajo reservation where I grew up, I saw friends and students falter when money moved from math class to practical application. Looking for tools to break the cycle of poverty and empower learning communities, I stepped into the world of financial literacy and edtech. You can find me working at the intersection of education, social justice, and business. I'm always happy to share coffee and a conversation about changing the world through the development of financial capability and innovative teaching practices.
