In roles from CEO, board member, founder and consultant to teacher, researcher, author and editor, I’ve worked with big institutions like Harvard, start-ups like Empowered to Educate, and global networks like the Melton Foundation and New England International Donors.
I’ve learned much from where I’ve hung my hat, including Spanish from my childhood in Colombia. Lots of things fire up my neurons, from cooking with family to playing electric bass. I balance all this excitement with forays into nature.
