I am a public health leader who wants to center my work around equity, be a champion for community voices, and unconventionally lead and reimagine systems that have caused so much harm to date.
Three words to describe me:
curious, efficient, humble
The best part of my job:
playing a role in shaping policy that could transform health outcomes for people who look like me
Something that would surprise others about me:
I am an introvert. I can deliver speeches and engage with crowds, but I'd much rather play behind the scenes.
