Yeeva brings experience in education technology and girls’ and women’s education policy to improve educational access and its responsiveness and relevance to marginalized learners.

Prior to joining The Learning Agency, Yeeva interned at Population Council’s GIRL Center researching education and public health policies affecting adolescents in low-and-middle-income countries. She graduated with an Ed.M. in International Education Policy from Harvard University, studied learning engineering at UNC Chapel Hill, and has a B.A. in Anthropology from Davidson College. Previously, she worked as a university English instructor in China and in non-profit development in Charlotte, North Carolina. Her experiences growing up as the daughter of an internment camp survivor and as a first-generation college student also largely influence her commitment to culturally responsive and adaptive learning.
