Nonprofit Strategist

    I am currently a nonprofit strategist at Vital Voices Global Partnership, where I oversee the Rising Voices portfolio of initiatives.

    Researcher & Writer

    My curiosities about transnational networks of people and information, as well as my expertise in writing, have resulted in the publication of my book and of dozens of essays.

    Leader & Mentor

    In all of my professional commitments, I support people by listening to their stories and asking them questions that challenge them to reexamine their assumptions.


    My experience has been shaped by a series of convictions:

    • Storytelling facilitates connections between diverse people.
    • Education is key to shaping democratic futures.
    • Teams are more than a sum of their parts.

    Those convictions have led me to pursue a Humanities PhD, to design equitable learning environments and experiential education assignments for hundreds of students, and to study the arts of leadership, mentoring, and convening people. Because I have a deep love for writing, I have partnered with dozens of publication venues (both peer-reviewed and trade) to disseminate what I know.

    I value professional discomfort for the growth it facilitates and look forward to learning, no matter where this journey takes me next.
