My path to ICFJ stems from a passion for equitable, accessible education, a life-long interest in foreign languages, and a deep-rooted desire to help people. I admire ICFJ for its promotion of the written word and its unfaltering defense of journalists as they seek to disseminate critical information.
In my role here, I provide administrative support to senior staff and assist in the planning, implementation, and impact evaluation of ICFJ programs.
My background: The common thread in my academic and professional career has been multicultural, multilingual education. I hold a dual bachelor’s degree in English, and Russian and Post-Soviet Studies from The College of William & Mary. I have a master’s degree in Slavic Languages and Literatures from Indiana University Bloomington.
Before coming to ICFJ, I taught Russian at the university level and co-taught English for foreign language learners. I am proficient in Russian and Spanish.
