I am so excited to be a part of the Kids Co team! I was born and raised in Seattle, leaving to California for college to study psychology at California Polytechnic State University. Upon graduation, I worked for a few years at an organization that supports youth experiencing homelessness. I have always thoroughly enjoyed creating activities and lessons for children, which is why I decided to join Kids Co. My main values are ensuring that I am working through a youth-voice lens, with social justice and cultural competency at the center of my work. In my free time, I enjoy rock climbing, painting, and playing with my dog, Fig!
