Work With Me

I received my Master of Public Health from the University of Michigan, with an emphasis on Health Education. I also have a certificate of nonprofit management from the University of Washington. I have over 20 years of experience working for a variety of organizations, including non-profits, for-profit agencies, and county, state, and federal government agencies.

My objective is to engage constituents in the mission of an organization through fund development, communications, engagement, program delivery, and accessibility.
