"Integrity is choosing courage over comfort; choosing what is right over what is fun, fast or easy; and choosing to practice our values rather than simply professing them" - Brené Brown

Currently, I am a public sector consultant for the State and Local Government practice at Guidehouse, where my client work has included digital equity strategy, program management for an IT implementation project at the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and a procurement assessment related project for the United Nations.

In 2019, I served as deputy director for the NYS Governor's Office of Storm Recovery Community Reconstruction program in NYC. I managed public service and infrastructure projects related to disaster recovery and community resilience building.

In 2016, I completed a PhD program at the University of Cape Town researching urban sanitation. My experiences have been varied ranging from internships with the National Park Service at the C&O Canal National Historic Park, where I helped operate a 19th century recreation canal boat, to working with private and non-profit organizations in South Africa involved with environmental and social advocacy work related to housing, water and sanitation.

My patchwork of experiences may seem at odds in an era of super specialization, but I would argue that versatile and varied experiences can be converted to knowledge and insights that can defy disciplinary boundaries.

As recommended by Brené Brown, I hope to bring the traits of integrity, humility, curiosity and sincere dedication to my professional and personal life.
