About the author:

My research interests focus on the resilience of low-income children and families from Latinx and African American backgrounds, particularly the role of child care and the relationships between children’s home and schooling environments that support children exposed to adversity early in life.

What I want to achieve:

I would like to change the systems that support children and families and create equitable access and opportunities so that children can thrive.
