Prior to my current position as a race and equity consultant, I was a finance and talent management leader in the higher education space for 20 years. While at the University of Washington, I implemented a race-conscious strategy for the Talent Management program, which was considered a best practice organization for over a decade.
I was invited to chair the 2016 and 2017 CASE Strategic Talent Management Conference, the 2018 CASE Conference on Diverse Philanthropy and Leadership, and to serve on faculty for the 2018 and 2019 CASE Minority Advancement Institutes.
I have presented at conferences and universities related to DEI and leadership, and I speak about building and sustaining a diverse and inclusive work culture at universities and other nonprofits across the country. I am committed to helping organizations build systems of belonging, and creating environments where—quoting Brittany Cooper, PhD— "Everyone has the audacity to live their authentic truth.”
I graduated from Georgetown University and hold a master’s degree in public administration from American University.
