Educators & Clinicians
UPDATE: I am spending 2022 working on gender equity initiatives in technology companies, and will not be available for work with schools for the foreseeable future. I began this work in earnest during the pandemic, and it has allowed me to come full circle — going from preparing girls to lead, to working with women in the trenches. Please consider joining my mailing list and keep in touch as my work evolves.
