As a speaker at the international Graduate Humanities Symposium held at Stanford University for my multidisciplinary graduate thesis on Renaissance Florence and recipient of a National College Undergraduate Research award, I am a big fan of writing and research for a variety of subjects that come under the umbrella of the humanities. Currently pursuing an MFA in writing at Vermont College of Fine Arts and teaching gifted home-schooled children in the middle school grades, I thoroughly enjoy finding what sparks the interests of my students while meeting the needs of their curriculum. My methods flex with my students needs, as I have rarely found two students who learn, work or share the same interests in exactly the same manner. My "child-led" approach includes project management concepts that will help them complete and excel in their work far beyond their school years. Prior to completing my most recent degrees, I coordinated large traveling exhibits for the California Academy of Sciences and have worked as a consultant for both nonprofit and for-profit entities in a variety of capacities. My background in project management includes a Fellowship in Community Leadership with CORO Northern California, President and Director positions with several nonprofit boards and several large public events. Most importantly, I am the proud mother of a busy gifted child who completed her first college course at age 10.
