College is such a critical time and I think it is important for every student to feel prepared during the application process and beyond. 


I've worked in college and career access for over a decade including most recently at The College Board leading postsecondary access initiatives for underrepresented students and managing national outreach for a $25 million scholarship program. I also was a Founding Member and Host of the Real Talk College Series, the largest virtual college exploration experience created for black students. As of date, Real Talk has reached over 50,000 students across the world.


Prior to my role at the College Board, I worked in the Office of Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. I received a B.A in Political Science and International Affairs from Notre Dame of Maryland University and a Master’s in Education Entrepreneurship from the University of Pennsylvania.
