She has lived in Mumias, Kenya while working for the Western Organization for People Living with HIV/AIDS (WOPLAH) program, and traveled to Northern India to attend the National Outdoor Leadership School.

Best moment of the year (so far)
I had my first client as a doula this summer, and I was with her when she delivered her first child!
Best purchase of this year (so far)
Canon AE-1 Film Camera. I’ve never shot film before this year, and now I am addicted. I love taking portraits—everyone looks better on film.
The place I’ll always call home
Colorado. I lived in Colorado for five years and spent the time exploring the state’s mountains, rivers, and ski towns.
An important moment in my career
I joined Bob and his team after finishing my undergraduate degree in sociology. My friends and family didn’t quite see the connection, but I find ways to apply my formal education to Nvolv’s work every day.
What I most love about my work
Meeting leaders who have a huge impact on their employees, their industries, and the world. It’s fascinating when I get a glimpse into how they think, make decisions, and lead their teams.
I got angry and then inspired to help make change when I read
“Just Mercy” by Bryan Stevenson.
