I’m passionate about increasing opportunities for equity and access.
In 2020, I decided to launch my own consulting firm so I could assist organizations with defining and refining their public policy priorities, establishing DEI strategies, and assessing business impact. I believe that leaders and company owners at every level should have access to evidence-based data insights and meaningful mentorship.
I developed my skill set by working in several sectors, including the federal government, private sector, and several national non-profit organizations. I am also an author of two children’s books as well as op-eds and articles that have appeared in local and national publications. My expertise, which sets me apart, includes policy analysis, advocacy, government relations, stakeholder engagement, and strategic communications.
My education includes a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Loyola University, a Master of Science in Public Policy and Management from Carnegie Mellon University, and a Juris Doctorfrom Duke University School of Law. I also have a certificate in Leading Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion from Northwestern University.

I am fortunate to have worked with many organizations, corporations, and branches of government over the years.
