I am a professional organizer ~ 12+ years of of experience teaching, volunteer/intern management, internship program development, leadership/mentoring, content creation, communications and community organizing experience. Focus: social justice and anti-oppression frameworks, promotion of access to underdeveloped populations, evaluating and teaching systems theory, specializing in public-policy advocacy, empathic and compassionate leadership, experiential learning, critical thinking, social justice theory, training and training of trainers – designing for social change. Emphasizing cycles and process in development, versus linear thinking and finish lines. I encourage and inspire those whom I work with and train with insight and realistic understanding that we have to start where we are and work toward where we want to be. I encourage, inspire and foster humor for and with whom I work. Humor, compassion and gratitude themselves have the power to heal any difficult moment.   I speak, read and write intermediate Spanish, and intercultural communications, content development, teaching/training and cultural sensitivity are my mastered skills.

Looking to make an effective and creative impact in our community and beyond regarding building awareness and advocacy campaigns. Through engaging & interactive programming, graphic design, community organizing, outreach and civic engagement, I love collaborating with others to make this world a better place.
