Talk to me about listening, empathy, positive psychology, leadership development, diversity/equity/ inclusion, running, or tacos. Or anything else that list doesn't cover.

I work at the University of Oregon’s School of Law (but am an L.A. native!). My current curiosities infuse principles of improvisation into leadership development and equity & inclusion. I have a background in counseling psychology--aka professional listening.

Outside of work, I distract myself by running in scenic locales, eating my favorite comfort foods (tacos!), and occasionally participating in the world’s largest treasure hunt (geocaching).
