Senior Manager, Foundation Relations
"Social justice is in my family’s DNA – my father taught at the School for Workers at the University of Wisconsin and my mother is a retired public school administrator and teacher; my husband is an attorney in the office of the Los Angeles Public Defender. I grew up walking picket lines, singing labor songs and participating in demonstrations. One of the things I am most proud of is my teenage daughter continuing our family commitment to social justice and activism. I am thrilled to be at Liberty Hill, and use my years of experience to help bring about a more just and equitable community."
