Why this work?

I believe ensuring every student has access to a quality education is key to creating a more equitable society. Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to work with many incredible students who had to navigate additional barriers in pursuit of their goals. I want to help make systems more accessible and equitable for students like the ones I have had the opportunity to work with.

Why ESG?

ESG is committed to creating a more equitable and just society through education. I’m excited to be able to work to strengthen key transition points so students of all backgrounds are able to achieve their education and career goals.
