Ms. Rees is a graduate of the University of Florida, College of Journalism and Communications, where she majored in public relations. In Georgetown’s Master of Arts in Liberal Studies program, Ms. Rees looks to actively apply learnings to public service work, specifically to advocate for the use of advanced technologies and ethical use of data in ways that reduce barriers to education and opportunity for American society, and globally.
