I am a white Jewish queer and anti-racist social change instigator with a twinkle in my eye. With over 22 years of organizational development experience, I facilitate values-based capacity building to sustain leaders and organizations on a path towards greater wholeness, intentionality and purpose. After earning a Masters’ degree in educational policy studies, I have facilitated change in a range of settings – from social service organizations to non-profits and institutions of higher education. I am an artist and a poet, a community builder and a justice worker. I live in Greensboro, NC with my beloved soulmate, our soon to be 13 year old son, and most adorable dog, Sherlock.
I’m a white Durham-based dyke who was raised working class in rural Southern Indiana. A member of the national Leadership Team of Showing Up for Racial Justice and the Poor and Working Class Crew of Triangle SURJ (NC), I support our movements as a facilitator and researcher on racial and economic justice. I also work on reproductive and sexual health, rights and justice locally, regionally, nationally and around the world. Before I started consulting, I worked as a Senior Policy Advisor at Ipas, where I helped build coalitions and advocated for abortion law reform in Nigeria, Malawi, and Sierra Leone, as well as in regional and global forums. I believe we as white folks can and must free ourselves from internalized white supremacy, build mutual interest and solidarity with people of color both in the US and around the world, and organize for collective liberation.
