I am a life-long feminist activist who represents NOW (National Organization for Women) as an NGO at the United Nations. I did my graduate work in International Relations and currently am Program Director for the Council for Responsible Genetics, a non-profit organization comprised of scientists and scholars who advocate for biotechnology in the public interest. I am a survivor of domestic violence who went on to thrive as a counselor and advocate. I am also a passionate advocate for indigenous peoples rights.
