Blueshift Education believes social impact media has the power to reach audiences and spark energy for deep and lasting social change.

Launched in 2015, we work with media makers to develop Impact Education resources – curriculum, guides, innovative platforms and tools, strategy and professional training content – to fulfill impact campaign goals and increase critical media literacy.

At Blueshift we are passionate about the intersections between education, social change, and storytelling. We are guided by our vision and commitment to deepen understanding of pressing social issues, amplify diverse voices, and create pathways to connect ideas, people and resources.

Blueshift Education, Inc. is located in Denver, CO.

The word ‘Blueshift’ describes how light wavelengths change as objects in space move closer, just as audience perspectives will change with the insight and context they gain from impact education materials.

I have joyfully worked in education for over 30 years as a History and Civics teacher in middle and high school before working for the international education non-profit Facing History and Ourselves as a regional director, curriculum writer, and facilitator of professional development and community conversations. As Co-Founder of Blueshift Education in 2015, I joined together my commitment and experience in education with my passion for social/racial/economic justice in order to increase the capacity for change by leveraging impact media across diverse platforms.

Outside of Blueshift I enjoy travel whenever possible, spending time playing in Colorado’s mountains skiing, climbing and camping with my family, gardening and recently learning botanical drawing. I have a degree in Politics from Mount Holyoke College, a Master’s Degree in Education/Curriculum and Design from the University of Colorado, a diploma in Jewish Studies from the Oxford Center for Hebrew and Jewish Studies, and completed my PhD coursework in Cultural Studies and History from Claremont Graduate School.



I love my work at Blueshift because I believe in the power of great media to spark the kind of connection, empathy, curiosity, dialogue and action that can lead to real social change.

My background is in public health, I have a Masters in Public Health from UC Berkeley and spent more than a decade doing domestic and international research in HIV prevention at the San Francisco Department of Public Health, facilitating communication and collaboration between government and pharmaceutical researchers and the marginalized communities who might benefit from the research, but who often have very valid reasons to mistrust the researchers.

Later, I applied some of those same communication and facilitation strategies as the Co-Executive Director of Building Bridges, where we equipped young leaders with the skills to build authentic relationships across social, economic, and racial divides – hosting summer camp and after-school programming in Israel and Palestine, and in Denver.

I also love: playing Catan with my kids, the occasional reality TV wallow (Married at First Sight, anyone?), breathing mountain air, and Philz coffee.
