My interest in training and education began with my service as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Mongolia. I loved working with the students and developing a community of practice with my counterpart teachers but did not want to pursue classroom teaching after completing my service. However, this experience inspired me to commit to connecting learners with the knowledge they both need and want. I returned to the US and earned a Master’s degree in International Training and Education at American University in which I focused on honoring learners’ experiences and realities in order to create accessible and equitable learning. This has becoming the driving passion for all of my work.
