At Nexus:

I joined Nexus in the spring of 2018. In my time at Nexus, worked across programs and in development. Currently, I am the Communications Manager. I care about creating powerful written, oral, and visual narratives that tell a story of an irresistible, attainable future.


Prior to working at Nexus, I was a program manager at the YMCA and special projects coordinator at The Alliance for Metropolitan Stability. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Biology and Women’s and Gender Studies at Carleton College. I am thrilled to join such a thoughtful, driven, and fun team working towards racial and economic justice. In my free time, I enjoy biking, playing ultimate frisbee, and hanging out with my cat.
