She holds a B.A. in Computer Science from Brown University and an Ed.M. in Technology, Innovation, and Education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

Louisa's dog Lotus is an inspiration for playfulness and the simple pleasures in life. When she runs with other dogs the pure joy of running is apparent in her stride - a good reminder to us all to take a minute and recognize the most basic element of fun in whatever we are doing.
