I have true passion for health equity, driving policy development, addressing social determinants of health, and elevating the practice of data to action.
Three words to describe me:
passionate, genuine, charismatic
The best part of my job:
being able to collaborate across many sectors and break down traditional silos, while discovering innovative approaches to foster change, which ultimately serves as a catalyst to collective impact
Something that would surprise others about me:
I come off as very intimidating and don't exactly give off YOLO vibes, but in fact I am very spontaneous, adventurous, and funny.
