Arielle is passionate about designing educational experiences. Driven by the goal of understanding how to apply psychology and education research to the classroom, her backgrounds pull from research, design, and instruction.
Prior to ThinkCERCA, Arielle worked at Northwestern University in a cognitive neuroscience lab and an interdisciplinary design lab. Before that, she studied design and front-end development at a full-stack design bootcamp. Her passion for educational technology originated from tutoring students while she was in college (and she has continued tutoring, on and off, ever since). She graduated from Colby College with a degree in Psychology with a concentration in Neuroscience.
