At Education Resource Strategies, I wrote on topics such as strategic talent management, funding policy, and school design. My greatest interests in education reform are in teacher preparation, development, and career path. This lead me to BetterLesson, where I worked closely with co-founder Erin Osborn on an op-ed about the future of education, as well as managing our blog. As of September 2021, I am the Director of Communications at Relay Graduate School of Education.

In the summer of 2011, I participated in News21, a project of the Carnegie-Knight Foundation to promote innovation in journalism. Along with about 15 alumni of Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism, we focused on the topic of aging in America, looking at everything from caregiving, to the aging workforce, to senior housing. I also did a short internship with MetroFocus at WNET in New York.
