Joelle is driven by the belief that a high-quality education, in addition to an environment that challenges a student’s worldview, creates the most powerful opportunities for achieving personal growth and academic success. A focus on both processes and outcomes is at the center of Joelle’s work at CityBridge. As an Associate, she works to extract insights from data and communicate them in meaningful ways to support change within CityBridge and with its work in D.C. schools.
Joelle graduated from Princeton University with a B.A. in history and completed her senior thesis on the relationship between U.S. government policy and demographic changes in higher education. At Princeton, she also coordinated orientation activities for the Davis International Center and served as an intern and an Advising Fellow at Matriculate, a nonprofit that assists low-income students in applying to college.
