My Story There’s value in being valued! My great passion is helping others to feel like the space they occupy in this world matters and makes a difference. As chief celebration officer (CCO) at United School Schools Associates (USA), it’s my pleasure to promote a culture grounded in mutual respect, thoughtfulness, recognition, and positive collaboration. As a former teacher and coach, I understand the need for people to feel appreciated so they can carry out their greatest potential and perform at the highest level. As a highly skilled reading specialist, I’m trained to recognize the delicate balance between reading words and comprehending context.
