About Me

I help systems and leaders move from embracing health equity in theory, to health equity in action by noticing and intervening on how racism and other oppressive forces operate within themselves and their systems. I shift mindsets, sway opinions, and enlighten the leaders who are shaping policies and making decisions that impact everyone’s health. Through immersive workshops, executive and individual coaching, and keynote speaking I underscore the urgency of equity while making equity relatable and tangible. I ground and simplify what equity really means, and provide concrete steps on how to act on institutional and individual commitments to equity. With a deeper understanding of the urgency of equity and how it applies to their work, those who work with me better recognize how to operationalize equity principles in their unique position or organization. They are equipped with a lens through which to make inclusive and equitable decisions for generational health impacts that change and save lives.
