Art | Creativity | Education | Philanthropy

As a social impact leader, I have dedicated my career to transforming lives and strengthening communities through the power of art, creativity, education, and philanthropy. As a servant-leader and champion for diversity, equity and inclusion, I strive for excellence while forging kind, collaborative, inclusive, and ethical teams. As executive director of three nonprofits, I have managed budgets of $1.5 million and assets of $3.2 million. I have spent 20 years igniting the imagination of diverse audiences through bold, creative engagement strategies; expanding access to the arts, especially for underserved students; and inspiring changemakers to positively impact their communities. Throughout my career, I have maximized organizational effectiveness and impact by aligning and leveraging resources, building consensus around a shared vision, and securing funding to realize that vision. Currently, I serve as executive director of the Brentwood Art Center (BAC) and as president of the HMC Architects Designing Futures Foundation.
