Hey Kirkland House! I grew up in Boulder, Colorado and have always loved outdoor pursuits like hiking, camping, surfing, and fishing. I went to American University in DC for undergrad, where I studied foreign policy and Russian language. I traveled extensively in college and immediately after graduation, spending time in Russia, Brazil, and Azerbaijan. After coming back to the States, I worked for my dad's roofing company for a year while training for Marine Officer Candidate School. I then spent time on active duty in Texas, Hawaii, and Virginia. My most recent assignment was with an artificial intelligence project at the Pentagon, and in the past few years I have developed a passion for technology policy. I am an incoming Mid-Career Master in Public Administration student, and this will be my first semester as a tutor. I look forward to meeting all of you and building community together in Kirkland!
Hi, Kirkland! I’m thrilled to return as a tutor in N Entryway. I’m finishing my Ph.D. in Romance Languages and Literatures, and my research focuses on literature and the French empire in the 18th and 19th centuries. During my time at Harvard, I’ve volunteered as a puppy raiser for Guiding Eyes for the Blind and have lived in France for two years. At Kirkland, I lead the Writing team, advise on Fellowships, and run a weekly French table (all levels welcome, so please join us!). Let’s talk public monuments, funky cheeses, good reads, studying abroad, and sweet pups (especially Albert, my released Guiding Eyes lab).
