Dominique joined the STS team in July 2019 as the Student Services Officer. She earned her B.A. in English with a minor in Africana Studies from San Diego State University and her Master of Arts in Teaching from American University. After graduate school, she stayed in the DC area and taught 7th, 9th, and 12th grade Honors English in Silver Spring, Maryland. Dominique has worked one on one with students for nearly a decade and is passionate about diversity, equity, and inclusion when it comes to education. She has mentored students as young as 12 and mature as 60 and believes her students have taught her just as much about life and the world as she has taught them. In her spare time, Dominique enjoys reading, brunch, anything Disney, and traveling to new places to further her appreciation of different cultures and customs.
