What do you enjoy most about about working at Thinking Organized?
The opportunity to work with clients in the realm of written language and executive functioning (time-management, organization, study skills, etc.), in order to prepare them to be college and career-ready individuals. It’s more than just learning subject-specific information, it’s about creating feasible systems that work for the individual to help them manage school and life.
What has been your greatest personal and/or professional achievement and why?
My greatest achievement is being the first person in my family to receive a college degree. As the daughter of an immigrant, this is an achievement I hold very close to my heart.
What interesting fact would your clients & colleagues be most surprised to learn about you?
I absolutely love to travel abroad, even though during my first experience I got sick on the flight over and ended up in a German hospital. I still plan to visit a different continent every year!
