Nucleus Learning Network

I have over ten years experience as an educator and program manager for innovative learning projects in schools, museums, and outreach settings. I have developed and managed a diverse set of programs focused on STEM education, 21st Century Skills, and creative problem solving. An avid collaborator, I have a strong record of establishing and sustaining partnerships with educators, mentors, and learners.

Now the STEM Education Specialist with 4-H CAPITAL, I am committed to education equity for girls and minorities; I am a strong advocate for the power of out-of-school-time and informal education in fostering life long learners. I believe that the best education comes from a community where innovative learning is accessible, collaborative, and highly connected. I want to hear about the amazing work that's taking place all over the country (and the world)! Come talk to me - I believe that together, we can do more. If you agree, let's talk about how we can collaborate.
