Senior Program Manager, Environmental Health & Justice (emPOWER)
"Throughout my career, I have been driven by work that creates tangible, equitable outcomes for historically disenfranchised populations. I view communities and the environment through a social justice lens, and implement culturally inclusive methods to work with socially, economically and racially diverse groups of people."
