Making a difference in the lives of children and families has always been a source of passion and purpose in my life! After earning my master’s degree, I spent over 20 years implementing programs to address the developmental and behavioral needs of young children, with additional focus on the child welfare system.
In 2019, I relocated to Humboldt County and was honored to join CASA of Humboldt in 2021.
At CASA of Humboldt, we have a unique opportunity to be a part of our community. When we offer children and their families a sense of hope combined with tangible assistance, the course of their lives can be changed. They can envision a new future-- no longer defined by mistakes of the past, but one that is filled with potential.
I am grateful to share my life with my husband, daughter, and our two dogs. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, hiking, and kayaking.

With a background in sociology and social development, I am personally invested in equity, systems work and better outcomes for individuals and communities. Working on behalf of children fuels me with purpose and hope that the work I do alongside my amazing team will have a positive impact on families throughout generations.
My purpose here at CASA of Humboldt is to empower my colleagues and our volunteers with the tools, data and workflows which are necessary in providing more families with CASA advocates. I am passionate about data-driven and purpose-driven work in service of our community’s most vulnerable and resilient!

With a degree in Social Work, and as a former foster, now adoptive parent my passion for children involved in the child welfare system runs deep. My career began in children’s mental health and program development for children and families affected by incarceration. Eventually, my focus shifted to the marketing, philanthropy, and community relations side of non-profits.
Outside of the office I stay involved with the community by sitting on the board for Food for People, and soaking up the sun wherever that may lead. 2020 was a year full of the unexpected including the arrival of twins! Through adoption, marriage and birth our family is now complete with seven amazing human beings that I have the privilege of mothering.
I am honored to be the link between our marvelous donors and the unbelievably wonderful work our CASA volunteers do. Together we are truly creating change.

I have a degree in Child Development from the now Cal Poly Humboldt. Before joining CASA of Humboldt, I worked in a local public school district as a child development specialist, working with ages 2 to 5 years old.
I joined CASA in early 2022 to combine my passion for advocacy and love of children and families.
Outside of work you can find me enjoying board games with my partner, going on walks with my dog or enjoying a warm day by the river.

I happily have been at CASA for three years. I have been working with children and families in Humboldt County in one capacity or another since 1996. I graduated from Humboldt State University (Now Cal Poly Humboldt) in 1998.
As a former preschool teacher and behavioral interventionist, I have had such varied experiences working with youth. I appreciate the compassion and commitment every advocate contributes.
In my free time I love to read, write poetry, garden and go camping.

I am a first-year Masters of Social Work (MSW) student at Cal Poly Humboldt in Arcata, California. I earned my BA in Africana Studies from Bowling Green State University. I have served as an associate minister at Campbell Creek Connections in Arcata and at Galilee Baptist Church in Eureka, California. In 2016 I started a grass-roots organization, Black Male Empowerment Network (BMEN), where I served as lead organizer from 2016-2020. I also served as the coordinator for the Eureka Extreme Weather Shelter. In my free time, I enjoy deejaying, reading, and listening to my favorite soul funk jazz artists like Roy Ayers, Donald Byrd, and Lonnie Liston Smith.
