5 years ago, I paid off my last undergraduate student loan and swore I’d never do it again. Today, I stand corrected. 😏 I’m so glad I changed my mind—this program and the people I met have changed me for the better. Here’s to using that to change the world. ❤️ #masteredit (Also, my Dad—the camera flash—DROVE from Austin for this. That’s love.) ————————👩🎓————————

We talked last night about your changing relationship with Eva and your wonder (even if mixed with frustration) at the uniqueness of each of your kids. They’re blessed to have such an observant, intelligent, humorous, and giving mother. You amaze me, Sister! Happy Mother’s Day!
I remember building forts out of couch cushions with her, turning off all the lights and pretending we were in the woods while eating our “ants on a log” snack. Decades later, she’s still architecting adventures with a new generation. Here’s to my imaginative, playful, clever, and abundantly loving mother; I love you! Happy Mother’s Day!

Might as well #oldheadshotday...my first headshot from 16 years ago, then another from 8 years ago. 😆
Over the past two years, I’ve been working on my masters in a strategic design focused program. Nearing graduation next month, I reflected on this experience, especially in light of my capstone project, and shared a few of the big lessons (link in bio). In the end, it’s a practice of hope and a belief we can make a difference in the world...and that’s not a bad takeaway to have.

So great to meet @neilblumenthal with my Parsons people and program co-director at FUSE Conference and discuss the role of strategic design in shaping the origins and future of @warbyparker. Thankful and inspired by the core ideals and mission of this disruptor!

I’m staying in South Brooklyn this trip and of course I found a local roaster cafe the first morning here ❤️☕️. Huge airy warehouse space with tables and all the coffee—brink a book and order to stay for a bit.
