At Nexus:

I joined Nexus in March 2019 as the Director of Human Resources and Organizational Culture.  I oversee all aspects of Human Resources including recruitment, engagement, and retention of a diverse and inclusive work team. My work includes aligning current and emerging practices, policies and processes with Nexus’ mission and values. Working in partnership with our leadership and staff, I lead efforts to create an environment of continuous learning and foster a culture where the team feels energized and valued by the work they do. I aspire to support joy and mindfulness in the workplace.



I came to Nexus with over 27 years working in the nonprofit sector in Minnesota. I have dedicated the majority of my career addressing systemic oppression and injustice. I have served on numerous neighborhood and community boards and helped to create the first community-based credit union in Minneapolis. When I am not at Nexus, you’ll find me working in my yard, watching volleyball and movies and spending time with my husband, children, and family.
