Professional

A mix of passions.

Founding Robotics for All in 2017 has shaped many of the roles I have taken on. I found my passion for teaching, business, and nonprofit work as the CEO. Currently I teach at Synthesis, a cutting-edge ed-tech startup as a teachers assistant. On the business side of things I am an Intern at Tsteps, a startup working on connecting professionals. I am also apart of Development Solutions Organization as a nonprofit consultant on several projects. Through these experiences, I have gained both teamwork and leadership skills. In addition, I have learned about different industries and roles within them.
