With the board and leadership team, I lead CSSP as we strive to accomplish our mission: to build a racially, economically, and socially just society in which all children and families thrive.
I do this work because
I do this work to make the world a fairer, more just place; to make the path richer and fuller for every child and young person; and to give back some of what I’ve received from the many people who’ve lifted me, generously and selflessly.
I am most proud of
Playing a part in creating CSSP as the team of caring, creative, committed people it is today.
