I believe in a more just, equitable future for all of us – and I love helping nonprofit organizations work toward that vision. With nearly 20 years of experience in the nonprofit sector, the common thread throughout my career has been helping diverse organizations develop new ways of meeting community needs – which has ranged from co-creating more dignified ways to care for our elders to founding the Twin Cities Mobile Market, a grocery-store-on-wheels that increases access to healthy, affordable food for thousands living in low-income neighborhoods.

Prior to coming to Propel, I provided consulting services to a range of organizations across the U.S., spent ten years in multiple roles at the Wilder Foundation, and worked for other Twin Cities organizations. I enjoy helping organizations translate the theoretical into the practical so they can get to the work they do best.

When I’m not working, you’ll find me chatting in the alley with my neighbors, spending time with friends, or volunteering with the West Side Community Organization in my neighborhood, St. Paul’s West Side. I also enjoy serving on the board of The Food Group.
