I am passionate about working with people and organizations fighting for justice. I understand and love the power a group of individuals can harness when they find a way to work together effectively. I bring this excitement to my organizational development work with nonprofit organizations, teams, and leaders.

More About Me

I am a certified coach, consultant, facilitator and trainer for nonprofit leaders and organizations.  My passion is working with people and organizations who fight for justice in our society and community.   I endeavor to center equity in my work.  That work includes performance management/staffing, coaching and communications, project management, boards of directors, and leadership development.  I am a certified leadership coach through Leadership That Works and not only bring my coaching to individuals but also with teams.  I was previously responsible for the design and management of CompassPoint’s public training program and played the lead for the organization’s conference program.  For nearly 24 years, my work not only focused on developing learning programs for CompassPoint but also facilitated trainings on topics including leadership, performance management, group facilitation, project management, and instructional design.   Most recently I was the project lead on a year long project focused on diversity, equity and inclusion for a national environmental justice organization. I  am proudly currently serving as the board president of Filipino Advocates for Justice.

Prior to joining CompassPoint, I was a youth group home supervisor for Star House in San Jose and social worker serving at risk youth in Baltimore.  I earned a BA in Business Administration and Marketing from Loyola College in Baltimore, MD and was part of a group of students that helped lead the development of what soon became the Center for Values and Service at Loyola.  I currently live with my partner and three teens where I spend much of my “spare time” trying to keep up with youth sports, college applications, field trips, and homework.
