Mr. Nonprofit Director & Startup Founder
Teaching through Teach For America changed my life and my career trajectory. The experience opened my eyes to my privilege and the inequities that exist in different communities. After teaching for two years I joined a nonprofit start up as a founding director in a new region. Since then I have consistently grown the team, revenue, and impact.
