As an organizational consultant my work is dedicated to mobilizing people, knowledge, and resources to promote human rights in relation to global health, economic development and environmental sustainability.

I came into contact with Namati while working on refugee human rights with Asylum Access, for whom I ran advocacy and communications until June 2018, working closely with staff from Africa, Asia, and Latin America.

In joining the Namati network I am interested in connecting with rights advocates around the world and learning best practices for legal empowerment, with a particular interest in refugee and immigrant situations.

I currently live in my native San Francisco Bay Area, California. This is where my work for social justice began with the Central American solidarity movement during the early 1990s. Since that time I have led grassroots advocacy mobilizations for Oxfam America, including the creation of a national grassroots advocacy training program with teams in 15 US cities. Prior to that I organized the first international medical conference on arms trafficking on behalf of the Nobel Peace Prize awarded physicians' organization IPPNW.

I look forward to sharing ideas and legal empowerment efforts with the colleagues on the Namati network!
