I serve on the Systems Change team, including working as lead of the Youth Thrive community of practice. I also support the Equity Inclusion and Justice portfolio, and provide subject matter expertise on youth engagement to the Alliance on Mixed-Income Housing.
I do this work because
I believe that just and equitable systems are necessary for young people to thrive.
I am most proud of
Helping to close the largest congregate care facility in the state of Tennessee.
