What are you up to these days?
As Manager of Instructor Success at Juni Learning, I have the pleasure of supporting a team of passionate, hardworking folks who care deeply about our hundreds of Instructors. My team is laser-focused on hiring, training, and coaching Juni Instructors, so that Instructors have the resources they need to inspire the next generation.

How did your time at CEP prepare you for what you are doing now?
CEP and YouthTruth have amazing managers and leadership. I constantly check in with myself and ask: what would CEP’s leadership do in this situation? I had so many opportunities to grow at CEP/YouthTruth, and I strive to give my team a similar experience.

What do you miss most about working at CEP?
By design, there’s no organization that focuses more on giving and receiving feedback in the name of continuous improvement.

What advice would you give someone about working at CEP?
Ask lots of questions! Your colleagues will be excited to support you in your learning and growth, and leadership is always happy to share the “why” behind decisions and think through how processes can be improved.

Describe your perfect Sunday.
I love exploring cities and long dinners with friends and family. So my ideal Sunday would be a trek around my neighborhood in San Francisco, and hosting a dinner party in the evening.
