headshotLearn about my work // As the Director of Strategic Communications & Community Engagement at the New Hampshire Women’s Foundation, I lead our engagement and communications efforts and build on our statewide coalitions. One of my favorite projects is our Women Run! program, recruiting and training women to run for local and state office in New Hampshire. I am a board member of SOS Recovery Community Organization. I’m also always getting into Good Trouble — learn more about some cool projects I’ve led or been a part of. I also serve Somersworth as an At-Large City Councilor, elected for the 2020-2021 term.

Read some of the work I’m most proud of // On quitting my job the day after the Orlando shooting; on “intersectional feminism” and feminist values in action; on the need for better court models for domestic violence survivors; on why the Hyde Amendment must be repealed; and on why I do not qualify the statement, “Black Lives Matter.

Join me // Come to a “Coffee with a Councilor” to chat about Somersworth, get trained to run for office with New Hampshire Women’s Foundation’s Women Run! program, get involved with SOS Recovery Community Organization, subscribe to a Chai Curious tea subscription, get involved with Somersworth Democrats or subscribe to the Indigenous NH 101 podcast.

As a vocal community leader and writer with a strong background in advocacy, and community organizing, I use my strategic communications and coalition-building skills to build better communities.
