Industry Relationship Manager


What does your role focus on?

I manager our industry user relationships and empower them to get the most out of Riipen. This involves working closely with their teams to understand their shifting needs, planning/co-developing project experiences and educating them on experiential learning best practices.


What gets you out of bed in the morning?

EASY! My wiener dog Relish (left in the photo)! He also goes by “Furr Snake” and “Pig”!


What’s a book you love, a quote, or something you think everyone should listen to or know?

My favorite author is Kurt Vonnegut, I think everyone should read Slaughter House Five. I’m also a music lover and have a sizeable collection of vinyl. My neighbors typically know when I’m home by the Van Morrison records playing in the background.


In your words, what’s the best part of working at Riipen?

That I get to help shape the future of education and empower young people to showcase their talents and capabilities.


What’s your best piece of advice to a student?

You’re worth it. Seriously.
