Personal Statement

I grew up in a family that prized learning above all else. With a significant family background in higher education (mom and dad were professors in math and physics), I was on my way to becoming a PhD scientist and - likely - university professor. It was a real wrench when I realized this was not right for me. What then? If at the time I'd had Indigo to help me better know myself, I might have more easily discovered the happiest direction for me. I eventually did find it. But not before experiencing much self-doubt and uncertainty.

I love people. I like making things happen on a short timeline and on a big scale. And I like knowing that I made a difference. Honoring those truths was what propelled me to an amazingly satisfying career, accomplishments, and the many wonderful friends I've made along the way.

Being a part of Indigo is my opportunity to give back, and - with the exciting, technology-enabled, personalized learning revolution happening right now, it is my privilege to be part of helping more of us figure ourselves out, better, sooner, and more fulfillingly.
