About Me

I am a data scientist, outdoor enthusiast, and advocate for computer science education for all.


I taught high school math and computer science in Los Angeles public schools for five years, with a focus on culturally responsive pedagogy and college readiness. In Summer 2021, I completed an immersive Data Science and Engineering bootcamp at Metis, where I honed my skills in data wrangling, statistical modeling, and machine learning techniques.

I now serve as a Data Science Coach for Multiverse, a fast-growing ed-tech start-up that seeks to expand equitable pathways to high-paying tech careers for non-traditional learners. 

You can find me carrying a stats book while backpacking across Yosemite -- or collaborating with like-minded educators over coffee and Zoom!
