Recently graduated from the University of Wisconsin- Madison, with my M.S. in Curriculum and Instruction in the School of Ed. I'm starting my PhD in the same department this fall. I study how arts integration promotes equity, multiculturalism, and social justice in education. I focus particularly on drama-based education and maker education. I'm also a teaching artist for a few local orgs like Children's Theatre of Madison, Whoopensocker, and the Madison Public Library. In undergrad, I studied theatre, philosophy, literature, and Spanish (help me practice!).
