I was born in Atlanta (Grady Baby!) and raised in the Metro Atlanta area, having gone to schools in Clayton and DeKalb counties . From a young age I was aware of disparities in the school system. Over time I became vocal about what I observed as well as participating in community events . In recent years, I have been intentional about being active in the space of education advocacy. This has led to my engaging with various organizations doing the hard and heart work to better education for our children. In addition to being a Parent Fellow, I am a school volunteer, including being a PTA member and incoming VP for 2023-2024. My family and I currently reside in Atlanta. We have one child attending school and my significant other working in the Atlanta Public Schools System (APS). I am truly looking forward to what will come from this fellowship with GeorgiaCAN.
