She has worked in four districts within Texas and in 2017 began establishing a nationwide footprint by joining NCCE as a consultant. She has experience in numerous educational and administrative roles, and most currently serves as a Kindergarten through 12th grade instructional technology specialist in Lamar CISD, near Houston, Texas.
