Please share one of your career goals and why it’s important to you.

I am grateful to have my current position and be working with people who are passionate about the products we sell. My current position has helped me learn some of the basics about being in the work force, the assessment industry, and the organization. My goals are to learn new skills and make a sizable impact, ideally in a leadership role.

What is something you’ve done at DRC that you are most proud of?

Through work on Florida and WIDA projects, to working on Illinois and now Alabama, I have learned a lot about testing programs. Not only did these opportunities provide me successful project management tools, they have also helped me build great relationships with the people I work with.

What is a fun fact about yourself that you would like people to know?

I speak 4 different languages fluently.  IsiXhosa, Zulu, Afrikaans (Dutch), and English. I grew up code switching between both IsiXhosa and Zulu at home and learned English and Afrikaans at school.
