Weekend Executive MBA | Class of 2019

 

I’m a program design and evaluation aficionado with a background in community engagement and digital strategy. I was nominated for the “Top 40 Under 40” in Washington Life Magazine for my use of design thinking to bring thousands of youth and emerging leaders across the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico into civic life. During the last decade, I’ve helped move more than $25 million to put strategic technologies and new operational tools in the hands of advocates for immigrant youth and refugees, low wage workers, and others from marginalized communities.

I currently lives on the East Coast of the U.S. with my partner who says I stay up too late when I catch Los Angeles Lakers basketball games.
