How did you end up working with CPET?
Having worked in education for 4+ years nothing is more satisfying than watching students achieve that "ahhhha" moment. My role at CPET is to assist teachers to maximize their students' potential and create the right conditions/atmosphere for true learning to happen in order to achieve a magnitude of "a-ha" moments.

How does CPET seek educational equity while navigating complicated mandates and policy shifts?
CPET does a great job giving their coaches autonomy while supporting their vision. CPET provides monthly informative PD’s to keep coaches aware of policy changes and consistently aligns their personal goals to echo the modifications.
If your life was a movie, what genre would it be, who would play you, and what is one song you want on the soundtrack?
My life would have to be an animated movie because it borders the line between fiction and reality; plus one of my favorite movies of all time is The Lion King. I don’t know how, but the writers would need to find a suitable place for Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” track. Sounds like a winner to me!
