Professional Goals

  1. I ultimately want to work in administration and/or research for an organization committed to ending hunger, eliminating poverty, and/or restructuring local/regional food economies.

My Story

I had just moved to Chicago after finishing graduate school in Boston and I wanted to build administrative experience in a field advocating for families and their health needs.

My Advocacy

I am extremely passionate about food justice and food security and support the Greater Chicago Food Depository, my local food and clothes pantry, Food For Real, and organizations aiming to eliminate poverty and the root causes of hunger. In addition, I’m a proud supporter of public journalism through local NPR and PBS stations.

My Education

Masters of Liberal Arts in Gastronomy
Boston University

Bachelor of Arts in Psychology

My Blue Bird Day

I joined Blue Bird Day in January of 2020 and what an interesting years they’ve been! I’ve definitely been glad to work with a positive and flexible team and I’ve learned a lot about being adaptive as an organization.

Blue Bird Day

Blue Bird Day fosters socialization, sensory regulation, and pre-academic learning in children ages 2–7 years in therapeutic rotations that simulate  preschool and kindergarten settings. Our compassionate therapists practice a relationship-based and family-centered approach, provide parent training, and collaborate on goals and individualized intensive treatment plans for your child.

We believe in a collaborative and multi-disciplinary team approach to therapy.  A team of occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, dietitians, developmental therapists, behavioral therapists, physical therapists, and therapeutic assistants are created for each child to ensure child and family are fully supported and the best possible results are achieved.  

Options for individualized, group and virtual therapy sessions are available as well.
