I am passionate about providing equitable, engaging, and meaningful experiences in informal education. I also believe it’s important for kids and staff to learn while having fun! Today I run the Brooklyn Cultural Adventures Program for the Brooklyn Public Library. This partnership of six Brooklyn institutions has been uniting Brooklyn’s families with arts, history, science, and culture in their borough for 25 years.
For the previous ten years I was part of the education department at the American Museum of Natural History, where I started as a part-time teaching assistant and ended as Manager of Middle and High School Programs. I have worked in multiple museums and cultural institutions throughout my career, including the Brooklyn Museum, the Wyckoff Farmhouse Museum, and the Children’s Museum of Manhattan. I graduated from the Bank Street College of Education Leadership in Museum Education (MS Ed) in 2016 and attended CUNY’s Macaulay Honors Program for an anthropology BA. When I’m not running programs, I enjoy traveling, trying new foods, and geeky movies.
Let’s get in touch.
