At Nexus:

I joined Nexus Community Partners, through Public Allies AmeriCorps program, as the HR and Organizational Culture (HROC) Associate. In this position I will support the HROC Manager in fostering a more collaborative and inclusive culture at Nexus.


After graduating from The School Of Environmental Studies in 2019 I participated in a trip to Washington D.C. with Kids for the Boundary Waters to advocate on behalf of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. To honor my strong passion for environmental justice and creating an equitable society, I later joined the Public Allies program of the Twin Cities and was placed with Nexus where I will use my past experience as a supervising manger to build HR capacity in a way that allows the needs of Nexus staff to be centered and equitably fulfilled.

In my free time I enjoy listening to music, going on hikes, falling off my skateboard, and pursuing my passions. Following my service in the Public Allies – Twin Cities, 11th cohort, I plan to go back to school.
