In addition to teaching with GSSW, I work as a full-time consultant, building capacity and driving social change across the non-profit, philanthropic, public, and private sectors focused on JEDI initiatives and strategic planning. I come to all of this work with a background in basic and emergency services, positive youth development, community organizing, and policy advocacy.
