I am most excited to work on projects that… challenge me and give me the opportunity to mentor.

I am looking for partners who can help me… grow and who complement my skills by being good at the things I am not good at.

A moment when I felt most inspired in my work was… at the 2019 WAND National Leadership Conference; the mix of activists, legislators, and experts was truly electrifying. Also, anytime that I get to help those earlier in their career learn and grow.

Innovations in my field that I am most excited to work on… involve building stronger, better aligned, and more sustainable organizations.
