Senior Fellow, Racial & Social Justice
She, Her, Hers
I work on many different racial and social justice efforts including leading CSSP’s contributions to the upEND Movement to dramatically improve supports and care for children, youth, and families as we move to abolish the current child welfare system. My work involves data analysis, technical assistance, and the development of innovative and actionable ideas.
I do this work because
I have a keen sense of justice. This work simply goes to the core of who I am.
I am most proud of
Collaborating with CSSP staff to develop our anti-racist intersectional frame that directs our racial and social justice efforts.

When the day is done
I enjoy spending time with my family, taking kids to various activities, and occasionally squeezing in a yoga class for me.
