She has a PGCE in Citizenship and PSHE from the Institute of Education, and focused her MA in Education on Teacher Training in Multicultural Classrooms. She began her career as a social worker in New York City and delivered workshops around sexual health and drug prevention. She’s passionate about empowering parents to talk to their children about self-esteem, consent and building digital resilience.
