My work is inspired by a desire to change the narrative about racially marginalized children’s development and learning so that society can see their diversity, tenacity, and talent. I was attracted to Urban because of the work it does that directly informs policymaking in relation to children and families, and I enjoy collaborating with colleagues on a multitude of projects related to early care and education and children’s health.
