My career has been in service of my community, from participating in the initial cohort of AmeriCorps Jumpstart Corps Members in New York City to responding to global humanitarian crises to serving the City of New York during this pandemic. My public health approach is grounded in the need to recognize the cumulative impact of structural racism and trauma on the health of our communities, and invest in building trauma- and resilience-informed communities and systems.
Three words to describe me:
caring, dedicated, supportive
The best part of my job:
working with an incredible team of people
Something that would surprise others about me:
I survived early stage cancer 5 years ago!
