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:
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.
