I support PRR’s community engagement and public affairs practices as a project manager and strategist. That means overseeing the implementation of scopes of work through coordination with clients and stakeholders and PRR’s practice leads. Prior to PRR, I staffed King County Councilmembers Larry Gossett and Girmay Zahilay from 2017-2022, primarily focused on issues related to affordable housing, economic development, and budget. I was also the community liaison to Skyway, WA. The PRR community is warm and welcoming, providing an ideal environment to get work done and be yourself. Outside of work, I volunteer with Treehouse on their Policy and Advocacy committee, helping on issues that affect youth in the foster care system. Depending on the season, you’ll either find me snowboarding, riding my motorcycles, or watching football.
An anti-racist PRR dismantles systems of advantage based on race when and wherever possible. We engage staff of all racial identities in dismantling white supremacy culture at work. This includes personal ideologies, beliefs, and behaviors. And, it includes removing white supremacy culture from the systems, cultural messages, institutional policies, procedures, and practices that PRR and our staff interact with and inform. We believe it is not enough to be “not racist.” We must be “anti-racist.”
