Biography

The purpose of my scholarship is to re-frame educational leadership and change to make both more inclusive, equitable and oriented toward collective uplift and continuous improvement. Specifically, I focus on issues of educational leadership and organizational change particularly in chronically under-performing and under-resourced schools and districts. I am interested in gender and racial bias in educational leadership as well as issues of educational infrastructure at the local, district and state levels. Teaching is my passion.

Prior to coming to UConn, I worked for Rhode Island Department of Education on issues of school turnaround and capacity building. I was a senior research associate for the Teacher Advancement Program (TAP) at the Milken Family Foundation. I hold a Master’s in Education in Administration, Planning and Social Policy and a Doctorate of Education from Harvard Graduate School of Education.
