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

I am tired! But I am always energized to end my day with reading my sons a bedtime story.
