Professional Background or Current Role: 20+ year professional in information technology and project management public and private sector
Community Connections: I enjoy volunteering and seek opportunities to support nonprofits and initiatives in Baltimore because I believe in Baltimore’s possibilities. I have volunteered with ArtScape, the Baltimore Book Festival, Bentley Food Pantry, and most recently the Baltimore Children and Youth Fund during it’s community engagement forums; working with grassroots organizations to identify resident-led solutions and programs for supporting young people in Baltimore City. From 2010-2014, I was a member of the Board of Directors for Women in Transition, a non-profit committed to supporting young women in their transition from foster care to independence. Currently, I am a Trustee for Gilman School and chair the Community, Inclusion, and Equity Committee.
Interest In Baltimore Hunger Project: First, I love children and am concerned about providing safety and stability to all children. Second, I am most passionate about inclusion and equity; working with people and within organization’s to dismantle structures and barriers which limit people and their possibilities. In Baltimore, the experience of hunger disproportionately affects Black children due to decades-old systems of marginalization and oppression. BHP provides critical assistance to children in meeting their acute need for nourishment. And, I see the opportunity to work to eliminate altogether the experiences of hunger for children in the Greater Baltimore area.
