My story

I am a deeply committed antipoverty advocate with significant experience focused on employment discrimination, consumer protection, low-income taxpayers, and domestic human trafficking. I have 12 years of experience working on social justice issues in Oregon, Kentucky, and California. As a result of my work with vulnerable communities, I have a strong understanding of the relationship between poverty, education, health, and crime, and the implications thereof for American prosperity and national security.

Everything I have done so far in my career has been driven by my passion for comprehensive antipoverty policy ideas, and a strong commitment to addressing 21st century challenges through strategic interventions that help individuals and families meet five basic yet powerful needs: (1) safe housing; (2) healthy food; (3) access to medical care, including dental, vision, and mental health; (4) personal and professional development through education and employment; and (5) reliable transportation, whether by personal vehicle or public transit.

I have learned so much about poverty and the day-to-day grind of living without enough. I also have an enormous amount of respect for people throughout the U.S. who are struggling, and I want to raise them up. I strongly believe that we can solve domestic poverty in our lifetime and I am committed to doing whatever I can to pursue this goal. I came to D.C. last year to work in anti-poverty policy and to advocate for vulnerable communities on the highest level.

When I am not at work, I am working with my friends to coordinate the parties to decorate cookies and write cards that we then donate to local non-profit organizations. The purpose of the parties is to encourage people to become involved in public service by showing them that simple acts of kindness can have as important of an impact on others as large actions and big monetary donations.
