No student should experience life after graduation feeling confused and unprepared.  Like so many, I walked into the world of work thinking I don't remember reading about this in my textbooks.
It took years for me to find my place and learn how to navigate a rapidly changing world.

I began my journey as a high school science teacher then shifted into a private school Educational Technology Director. I then became Director of Innovative Learning at the University of Southern California, after which I was hired at Apple Inc. as an Education Leadership Executive. At Apple, I worked with schools to integrate technology to advance strategic initiatives.
