Interests

Speaking, writing, facilitating,  community, organizing  and program design are my passions. When speaking or facilitating, I can make a room of 500+ people feel like it's just the five of us. I am not a fan of small talk but am intentional about fostering inclusive and diverse conversations to implement tangible results that inspires change.

In my spare time, you can find me deep in art history research, business books, travel or frequenting a garden nursery to buy a new plant ( I am officially a plant mom ).
