ABOUT MY WORK

I have over five years of experience in influencing through digital media and facilitating productive, educational conversations around diversity, equity, and inclusions. From social justice organizations to universities to city governments, I'm trusted to create meaningful strategies, produce impactful messaging, and shape strong narratives through my digital content, workshops, and writing.

I leverage my background in neuroscience, leadership, and organizing to create strategic communications that help partners meet their goals. Whether that means developing an intensive workshop for a staff or building a long-term digital media plan, I work hand-in-hand with partners to bolster their brand’s inclusivity, internally and externally. My work aligns with my belief that brands should reflect communities, inside and out.
