Project Director, Prenatal—Three Initiative
She, Her, Hers
I direct our Prenatal to Three Initiative, which is aimed at increasing the number of young children on track for kindergarten by age three. I support communities in their efforts to provide pregnant women and young children with high quality, accessible health services, family support, and early childhood education.
I do this work because
I believe that today’s babies are tomorrow’s workforce. It’s our job to help each one reach their full human potential.
I am most proud of
Providing mentoring to young adults on career and professional development.

When the day is done
