Thank you so much for joining us in this interview series! Can you share with us the ‘backstory” of how you decided to pursue this career path in AI?
My career path was not traditional. I started my career as a teacher in New York City Public Schools and spent several years in the classroom. While I saw tremendous growth in my students, I wanted to make an impact beyond a single classroom. Next, I worked at the International Baccalaureate Organization, training teachers and developing online training programs.
