Thea is a fully bi-coastal New Yorker living in LA, but she has followed her love of languages and literature all over the world.

In her current role at BrainPOP, Thea leads user research that informs inclusive, future-ready ed tech design and content strategy. But she has a long history with K-12 education. Previously, she developed educational programs for Little Pim and College Essay Advisors. In these roles she developed an affinity for curriculum design and animated video production. She is also an alumna of the TAPIF English Teaching program in France, and has had the privilege of teaching English, literature, and writing in a variety of settings around the world.

In 2016 she earned her MA in International and Transcultural Studies from Teachers College of Columbia University with a concentration in Languages, Literacies, and Cultures. Her research covered a range of topics including writing instruction, digital storytelling, and culturally responsive pedagogy. She also participated in Columbia Business School's Innovation and Entrepreneurship program, where she worked on an app to connect parents and teachers around meaningful literacy goals.

In 2011, Thea graduated magna cum laude from Haverford College with a BA in Comparative Literature and French.

In 2010, she won a Haverford Student Arts Fund grant to start the ListeningProject, an oral history initiative. In 2014 and 2015 she was awarded a number of graduate scholarships and grants, including Haverford's Clementine Cope Fellowship. Her research has been featured in global conferences through CIES and the University of Sheffield.

Thea is an avid reader, podcast-listener, and yoga-attempter.
