I live in Brooklyn, New York andam currently in a dual graduate degree program in Public Administration and Public Health Columbia University. I am focusing on international development and women's health. For the past six years I have worked with organizations committed to the advancement of social justice for women and girls and am excited to a part of the World Pulse team expanding the pulse on the east coast.
I recently completed work on the Women Moving Millions campaign – a historic Initiative launched by Helen LaKelly Hunt and Swanee Hunt to encourage women donors to give at the $1M and above to women’s foundations. The campaign raised more than $180 million for women and girls around the world. Three years ago I co-founded (and now co-chair) the Supporting Women Artists Project (SWAP). SWAP is a Brooklyn-based non-profit organization that provides free studio space to women artists in exchange for their mentoring public school students who do not have access to art education. I am also a proud member of the Third Wave Foundation - a national feminist foundation that support young women and transgender youth through strategic grantmaking, leadership development, and philanthropic advocacy. I am excited to bring my experiences from these different spaces to World Pulse as I learn from the wealth of knowledge and experience brought forth from each of you!
