At CSSP

I support monitoring the Humboldt County, California child welfare system in meeting their system change goals. I have served on the management team of the First 5 LA Best Start placed-based initiative and manage CSSP’s Los Angeles office.

I do this work because

Families and communities are the experts—this is amplified when they have a voice in systems building and decision making.

I am most proud of

Supporting the annual Healing Communities Conference, bringing native and indigenous healers and teachers to share and build with the community.
