An environmental professional with 4+ years of experience in non-profit, grassroots and government sustainability work. As a researcher, listener, communicator and storyteller, I work with people and organizations to build community and advocate for an ecological, just and equitable world.

Currently, I am a consultant for the Detroit-based grassroots non-profit, We Want Green, Too! and a program consultant for the Environmental Grantmakers Association, which serves a community of 200+ grantmaking foundations. When I am not consulting, I serve as a volunteer editor and social media manager for the Black, Indigenous and People of Color-led digital magazine, Platform Magazine. Outside of work, I spend time with friends and dabble in poetry.
