"DO WONDERS WITH THE JOYOUS BURDEN OF BEING HUMAN"

Admitted to the Bar in New York State

I've been incredibly lucky to have experienced a life and career beyond my wildest dreams. I've founded organizations, pushed equity based program design, been rejected from (and then received!) prestigious fellowships and have raised more than 2.5 million dollars in funding. I've traveled China as a human rights researcher and driven around the United States offering free legal services to immigrants.  

 

Lately, however, I've realized my passion lies behind the scenes, supporting organizations and individuals in changing the world. I've done Executive Director leadership coaching, program design and fundraising development. I've advised founders and funders, colleges and corporations; my clients include Echoing Green, Claremont McKenna College, Brooklyn Law School, and the Louisiana Center for Children's Rights. Find specific examples here. 

I truly believe we all have something to offer to make the world better, we just have to push ourselves to reach further, think broader, and be bolder.  Changing the world is a group project. Let's do this.
