“I have over a decade of experience working in the non-profit sector to serve various communities in Oregon and Colorado. I have transferred from working with individuals to taking a more community and systems-level approach to identifying innovative solutions to complex needs. This has included individual direct service and leading a statewide professional network for practitioners to support families all across Colorado. I am a strong Starter and love working on new projects and initiatives to develop processes, build partnerships, engage stakeholders, and support success.
