Auri Whitaker

Data & Evaluation Specialist

Auri received her BA in Psychology with an emphasis in research methodology from Hampton University. Prior to her Education Pioneer Analyst fellowship, she directly served students from under-resourced communities in Washington D.C. and Los Angeles, as a behavior therapist and community interventionist.
