About Me

As a scholar-practitioner, I work at the intersection of education, access, and technology. I currently serve as a Program & Policy Development Specialist for the Los Angeles Unified School District, coordinating digital citizenship efforts and producing district-wide reports on instructional technology practices. My research interests include digital citizenship, education technology policy, and social media studies. In addition to my research endeavors, I have been a HASTAC Scholar, an AAHHE/Ford Fellow recipient, and was elected to serve on the AERA Graduate Student Council as Web Secretary, where I oversaw the Council’s digital endeavors. I received an Ed.M. in Technology, Innovation, Education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education where I focused my studies on developing a prototype mobile game called ‘FUNancial Aid’ aimed at increasing financial aid vocabulary comprehension. I recently completed my doctorate in Educational Leadership at California State University, Long Beach, where I engaged in praxis, leveraging my digital citizenship work within L.A. Unified to conduct a qualitative case study for my dissertation. I am currently serving as a  CSULB Post-Doctoral Fellow researching practices, strategies, and systems that support district-wide digital citizenship programs.
