Prior to joining Creatio, she led a 15-year career in education working to ensure that children in high poverty neighborhoods – specifically in Washington, DC and rural Colorado – have access to high-quality educational opportunities. She served as a leader within two high-performing charter school management organizations – KIPP DC and DSST Public Schools – and led school and district turnaround and accountability initiatives at the Colorado state department of education.
