Authorization and Accountability Manager

Since 2019 I’ve worked with CSI school’s on a wide range of initiatives, from supporting the work of our teachers and school administrators to provide students with awesome postsecondary opportunities to helping school nurses and administrators navigate the challenges and complexities presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.   I came to CSI with a passion for getting students to and through college, and my time here has broadened my awareness of what it takes to run a school and helped me better understand how we can provide a more complete education to our students.

The educational experience can look so different today than it did when I was a student, and it excites me that I get to work with CSI staff and schools each day on innovative ideas to prepare students for all the opportunities that can happen after high school.  Prior to joining CSI I worked at a community college in Colorado and I’ve seen first hand the experiences of students transitioning to life after high school; students have so many post-secondary options and I really enjoy supporting a diverse portfolio of schools as they work hard to prepare students for those opportunities.

I am originally from Rhode Island, where I attended the University of Rhode Island and Rhode Island College, and now live in Denver with my family and our dog and six chickens.  I’m continuously on the hunt for pristine, off-grid camping spots in Colorado, and am looking forward to getting our kids on skis this winter!
