I grew up in southern California and went to college at Santa Clara University, where I studied Theatre Arts and Women's & Gender Studies. Since college, I've done a year of service with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps in Baltimore, MD; spent a year in China with the Maryknoll China Teachers Program; and spent two years living and working at L'Arche Heartland, a community of adults with and without developmental disabilities in the Kansas City metro area. I'm now happy to be back in the SF Bay Area, doing work at the intersection of disability, technology, and instructional design.
