Bees are known to be hard workers, effective collaborators, and harmonious beings—and that’s who I am as an educational developer at the Curriculum and Instruction Division at CEE. I have a PhD in History and Indigenous Studies from UCSB, located in the lands of the Chumash Peoples, and I’ve worked in educational development and policymaking in higher ed and EDI or over 17 years. As a multidisciplinary scholar and educator, I've had the privilege to learn and unlearn from a range of experiences in institutions such as the University of California Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara Community College, Quest University, McGill University, John Abbott College, among others. My background as an interdisciplinary qualitative researcher and a participatory-based educator has allowed me to learn and make contributions as a scholar, professor, educational developer, and strategic planner in a range of areas such as: Instructional Design; Curriculum & Program Design; Multilingual teaching and learning; Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion; Decolonizing and Indigenizing Initiatives; Critical and Anti-Oppressive Pedagogies; Design Thinking and Social Innovation Labs.
