a bit about me:
I provide strategy, partnership development, and management solutions to industry, international organizations, and educational institutions. With a special focus on robotics & AI, my work has included global talent acquisition & development, customized training as well as organizational development strategies. For the past fifteen years, I developed international recruitment, education, and research initiatives at Carnegie Mellon’s Robotics Institute. I currently serve as co-director of the RI Summer Scholars Program and global programs manager at Carnegie Mellon’s Robotics Institute.
I have developed educational programming solutions for the U.S. Department of State, the United Nations (UN), UNESCO Associated Schools Program, and the UNESCO International Bureau of Education. I hold a master's degree from Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz College of Public Policy & Management. I graduated with a bachelor’s degree from the University of Pittsburgh in economics (including study abroad and work experience in Slovakia). Teaching, working, and/or living on four continents has made working across boundaries and disciplines second nature. All of these experiences are united by a deep commitment and unique approach to empowering individuals and creating an impact for organizations.
