As a seasoned professional working at the intersection of policy, programs, service delivery analytics and the lived experience of vulnerable populations, I know how social and economic policy can expand, limit, or eliminate opportunity. Everything depends on our ability to understand the complex interdependencies between transit, housing, energy, education, employment, childcare, and healthcare resources. Our ability to tolerate difference could use a boost too.
As a systems thinker, I know that complex problems require holistic and multi-faceted solutions. My commitment to increasing access to justice, improving procedural fairness, and valuing human dignity runs deep and wide. Whether working on civil and criminal justice reform, managing conflict, enhancing collaboration, or expanding access to affordable housing and high quality healthcare, I help organizations dig deeply into their current challenges to find patterns—the ones that produce successful outcomes time after time, as well as the ones that keep showing up as “unsolvable” problems. In addition to tackling the nitty gritty details of operational policies and procedures, I facilitate strategic visioning and action planning efforts, help Boards and Leadership teams work together effectively, and help service delivery organizations connect with the individuals and communities they serve.
