I believe that intersectionality is the foundation of authentic change work when it comes to breaking down barriers, opening up doors, and genuinely supporting communities. I have served in key advisory roles around these topics throughout my career. It is a personal passion of mine and a thread you can see across all of my creative, corporate, and public work.
As a trained artist and writer, I learned empathy and understanding. In my undergraduate years, I focused on cultural analysis and political strategy. As a public affairs and media professional, I honed a skillset in identifying the needs of underserved communities and managing stakeholders at every level. And as an international MBA graduate, I bring global insight to intercultural work and meaningful social impact.
These experiences are deeply important to me and define the work I do above all else. While I wear many creative hats, I am also a builder and strategist: I am passionate about creating accessible structures, effecting operational growth, and making things--whether it's a piece of writing or a brand new corporate division--that drive change where it's most needed.
Through a combination of lived experience, an early start in public service, scholarly work centered on inclusion and identity, and a career rooted in accessibility, I bring a unique expertise in thoughtful change management.
Strategic work includes:
Diversity, equity & inclusion
Organizational change management
Inclusive content strategy
Executive advisory around issues of social impact and representation
I am always open to virtual and in-person speaking opportunities. Since 2009, I have spoken on panels for students, faculty, administrators, and professionals on the subjects of inclusion, social justice, and intersectional approaches to leadership.
Speaking engagements include:
United Nations International School (New York City, USA)
