Experience

I began my journey with the South Bend Community School Corporation as a Site Coordinator for the Title I after-school program, LEAP followed by my role as a Family and Community School Specialist and Parent Support Specialist.  In addition to my respective roles with the South Bend School Corporation, I have also served as the Mentor Program Coordinator for the South Bend Education Foundation and as the Assistant to the Director of African-American Student & Parent Services - which allowed me to build solid community partnerships as well as, identify areas of organizational improvement via project management. With over ten years of experience in the realms of education and non-profits, I have been fortunate to tap into my passion for assisting students and parents in overcoming obstacles and preparing for success.
