Director, Capacity Building & Leadership Development
She, Her, Hers
My work focuses on helping communities and leaders increase their capacity to better achieve results and address racial equity through leadership development, training, technical assistance, and coaching.
I do this work because
I believe in the capacity of every individual to be a transformative leader and make a contribution to improving the lives of others to achieve a more racially, economically, and socially just society.
I am most proud of
Leading the technical assistance and partnering with residents and community leaders on multiple national community change initiatives to build their capacity to act on disparities in order to achieve more equitable results for children and families.

When the day is done
You can find me spending time with family and our two amazing dogs, listening to music, working out at my local gym, or hanging out in the kitchen experimenting with new recipe ideas. If you can’t find me, it’s because I am off on another travel adventure.
