“I believe work in any field, especially research and evaluation, is only truly and ethically accomplished when racial justice and integrous practices are at the forefront of our empirical approaches. This is why I am excited to be part of the team at School Readiness Consulting where we strive to uphold equity, diversity, and critical consciousness in all that we do.”
