I work as a member of the Systems Change team. Through technical assistance and support, I help to provide guidance to states as they work to create more trauma-informed and equitable system to better impact the children and families they serve.
I do this work because
Too many in our society are harmed by the same social systems that should exist to empower and help them live healthy and safe lives with their families.
I am most proud of
My previous work and advocacy around parental substance use, trauma, and mental health relative to child welfare removals and FFPSA.
