Working with client organizations to deepen their Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion strategies, execute on their plans, and achieve their goals. I’m passionate about the far-reaching impact of DEI work, particularly when it is approached as a business imperative

Community causes

Favorite saying
As a perfectionist, I have to remind myself, “Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good.”

Favorite travel destination
Iceland is one of the most other-worldly places I’ve experienced. Between the volcanos, geothermal pools, waterfalls, and glaciers, it feels like a compilation of all the Earth’s most incredible wonders on one small island

I could teach you how to
Cook! I love planning for and preparing meals, whether for one person or a whole dinner party. It’s also one of my favorite ways to unwind at the end of the day
