I am inspired by the work of the Meyer Foundation’s grantee partners to connect the voices of our region and create the stories that shape movements. I believe that using community voice to amplify power makes big change possible, and those big changes are what will create a region in which all people thrive.
As the Partnerships Associate at the Foundation, I work with colleagues to support our Racial Equity in Education Initiative, the overall funding work of the Foundation, and other special projects. In 2019, I was also an Exponent Philanthropy NextGen Fellow and represented the Foundation on the Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy (EPIP)DC Steering Committee.
Prior to joining Meyer, I worked in associations supporting membership programs. That experience taught me the importance of listening and helped to solidify my belief that we all hold the solutions to challenges within ourselves. Listening is the only way to find those solutions.
I joined the Foundation in 2015.
