TJ also worked as a data consultant for the US Soccer Foundation and as a consultant of the Boston Ballet, where she managed school-based arts programs and taught in the Boston Ballet’s world-renowned Adaptive Dance Program, which provides high-caliber dance instruction to youth and adults with Down syndrome and/or Autism Spectrum Disorders.
