For more than two decades my work in journalism, philanthropy, education and advocacy has focused on transforming institutions by centering equity, community voices and collective action. 

By mobilizing resources to frontline leaders, designing large scale civic projects, coalition building, and powerful storytelling I have helped foundations, newsrooms and nonprofits engage deeply with the people they serve to build resilience and a shared vision for the future we need.

My Work

Philanthropy and Donor Advising

For nearly a decade I have worked to develop innovative philanthropic programs focused on centering community, collaboration, and equity.

Organizing and Civic Engagement

I am a community builder at heart and bring the lessons from organizing – trust, strategy, and storytelling – into into all that I do.

Education and Teaching

I believe that education can be a transformative force in our society and I have been lucky to work with students and faculty across my career to connect coursework with community work.

Writing and Communications

My work and writing has focused on changing whose stories get heard and amplified in our society across journalism and technology.
