At Nexus:

I joined Nexus in April 2008 and currently serve as the vice president of programs and operations.  It’s a great position that allows me to be involved in all of our amazing programs.


My career has been dedicated to supporting positive change among individuals, organizations and communities. Over the course of 16 years working with nonprofits, both domestic and international, I have supported communities and organizations in their ability to be impactful and effective. I was drawn to Nexus (all the way from Washington, DC!) because of our commitment to community engagement and our core values of equity, learning and respect.  When I’m not at Nexus, I’m spending time with my husband and two adorable sons.
