I bring a range of public and private sector experience to my work and enjoy spearheading initiatives that create new opportunities for impact. I have been on the founding associate boards of various nonprofits and volunteer with the Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy (CECP). I hold a BA from Columbia University and am currently a MPA candidate at New York University.
I am currently a founding member of the Strategy and Program Development team at NYC Emergency Management. Part of our team’s responsibility includes leading the implementation of various aspects of the agency’s first Strategic Plan. Previously, I was responsible for developing the agency’s engagement with community based organizations with a focus on the integration of the needs of people with disabilities. Last year, I presented on this work, discussing community engagement and integration at the 2017 National ADA Symposium.
During my time with the City of New York, I have highlighted some of the agency’s work in various press features:
