Why uAspire?

The opportunity and achievement gap contribute directly to the levels of inequality we see across our nation's communities. I have a passion for and commitment to closing these gaps and working towards a more equitable world. Additionally, I find being of service incredibly important and rewarding. Working at a mission driven organization like uAspire, and specifically in Finance & Operations, allows me to be of service in both the big and small picture. Ensuring that every student has access to an affordable path to and through college is such important work and supporting uAspire staff in making this possible is what drives my work.
