I am joining the Right Track team after working with young people experiencing homelessness for over 9 years.  I have experience in delivering street-based outreach, curriculum development, and food shelf operations. I have a passion for youth work and making lasting connections with community members.   I believe in meeting youth where they are in their journey and supporting them as they realize their full potential.  When I am not at work I love to garden, can pickles, and go for runs with my dogs.  I have a degree from the University of Minnesota majoring in Child Psychology with minors in Youth Studies and Family Violence Prevention.

I was born and raised in St. Paul by the Rice Street area. I received my B.A in Psychology with a concentration in Race and Ethnic Studies at St. Olaf College. My first internship was with the Minnesota Historical Society, where I worked in the education department producing educational cartoons that taught history inquiry and assisted in conducting a new Hmong culture education kit for classrooms K-12. I also have experience working with underrepresented youth as a mentor and teacher’s assistant for TRIO Student Support Services last summer. For leisure, I read manga, play tennis, eat out, and fangirling about Korean pop or drama videos.

 

Right Track staff are supported by the City of Saint Paul Department of Parks and Recreation and the Office of Mayor Christopher B. Coleman.
