Career/Career Ambitions: 

My career has careened between education and law, often combining them.  For the last 20 years I've been the executive director of The Princeton Review Foundation, with a mission of doing advocacy on test fairness and affirmative action, and providing admissions test prep information and resources to low-income and URM high school and college students.  Recently I have specialized in providing services to Native American students.  I've been active in the Fisher I and Fisher II affirmative action cases.  A highlight of my career was testifying as an expert witness in the landmark Grutter Supreme Court affirmative action case in 2001.  

Fieldwork Placement: 
Student teaching at the West Philadelphia Free School

My chapter, "The SAT: Quantifying the Unfairness Behind the Bubbles" was published in the 2012 book, SAT Wars.  I was quoted on unfairness on the SAT in the Nov. 1, 2015 Sunday Education Life section of the N.Y. Times.
