From 2008-2010, I worked in the private sector, as a Production Assistant with EdLab at Teachers College, Columbia University in New York City.

In 2008, I earned my BA in Philosophy, and also History, at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, while working ~35 hours a week to finance my education.

I'm a first-generation college student, committed to making other non-traditional students feel like they belong in the classroom.
