Ready to speak up and get things done.

It is an honor to represent such an engaged, compassionate, and energized community. I have had the pleasure of testifying to members of Congress, speaking at the United State of Women about our great state, and meeting President Obama in the White House. I've also received awards:

  • Angels in Adoption Award, 2013
  • Bell of Hope Award, 2014
  • RIPIN Legislator of the Year Award, 2014
  • AARP Capitol Caregiver, 2016
  • YWCA Isabel Ahearn O'Neill Award, 2017

I'm also proud to have had a career where I live my values everyday. I currently serves as the FMLI Campaign Advisor to Family Values@Work, a national network of 26 state based coalitions fighting for family-friendly policies such as paid sick days and paid family leave. Previously, I served as the Strategic Initiatives Officer at Women's Fund of Rhode Island. I've also been a consultant in the nonprofit sector, assisting with strategic advocacy efforts, policy analysis, and qualitative research. I began my career in Rhode Island working at a national organization focused on increasing access to health care for the uninsured.  I'm a former board member of Adoption Rhode Island and Temple Emanu-el.

I graduated from McGill University with a B.A. in English Literature and earned a Master’s degree in Public Policy from Tufts University.

“Rhode Island has got the right idea. You’re just one of three states where paid family leave is the law of the land. More states should choose to follow your lead. It was funny in the meeting this morning, business leaders said the Rhode Island law helped them in recruiting and retaining outstanding employees.” - President Obama, October 2014
