Since I was a young girl...
I have been an active member of my community. Growing up with a mother who was fierce advocate for social justice meant I had the opportunity to follow in her footsteps. Since then, my professional career has focused on public safety-net services at the state and local levels. And my work is not done. Follow me to learn more about the work that I do for social justice, equity and inclusion.
