Welcome! Thank you for checking out my website! Here, in this cyber space I can call my “own”, I introduce myself, my experiences and my work, and share my journey along the road of vocation. I am an educator at heart, but trained also in psychology, sociology, sport science, and human development. I embrace the symbiotic relationship between research and practice, and am currently seeking a job in my field that would allow me to use any combination of my skills as an academic or a practitioner, or better yet, as both!

I believe we are all in an ongoing quest for “vocation”, for purpose, for meaning in what we do. In recent years as I have navigated the world of graduate school, doctoral work, and applied experiences, I have been challenged by the question of who the world needs me to be. How can I use my training to bring more justice, creativity, and joy to the world?

Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”

-W.B. Yeats

"For the mind does not require filling like a bottle, but rather, like wood, it only requires kindling to create in it an impulse to think independently and an ardent desire for the truth."

-Plutarch, On Listening to Lectures
