She is a Michigander who attained her B.S. in Liberal Studies with an emphasis in “Women and Leadership in Healthcare” and a minor in “Women and Gender Studies” at Grand Valley State University.

Therefore, she attended Clemson University in South Carolina for her Masters in Education in Student Affairs. At Clemson, she worked in their multicultural center for social justice education, where she found her true passion in dialogue and creating inclusive learning environments. During this time, she developed and taught curriculum for peer dialogue facilitators and fostered conversations for all freshmen students surrounding social identities and using the tool of dialogue to talk about difficult subjects. Esther also has an obsession with shoes, trying new food, exploring new places, and her cat child Theo who thinks it’s a dog.
