DEPUTY DIRECTOR

Values-Driven – Mission-Focused

Above all else, lean into discomfort, and do no harm. Feedback is a gift. I love life and preserving our happiness while increasing our growth as humans. I assure you this is possible, all at the same time. We must always open ourselves to the power of possibility, for there is always more to learn, and it only gets better. I love singing and all things music, photography, coffee, and chocolate. As we continue living in these times, we can say very few things are certain; for sure, we must do our work better, bigger, and bolder. No matter the product, it must be centered on people-first, culturally humble community.
