My first love in communications was food and nutrition work. Through my work at PRR, I broadened that focus to healthcare and other strategic communications work that can contribute to more equitable communities. Today, I also guide our client services, creative studio, and market development teams to make it meaningful in everything they do. I am very honored to have a place on PRWeek’s national “40 Under 40″ list (not saying which year!). I am also Past President of the Atlantic Street Center’s Board of Directors and proud former foster parent for cats at PAWS (I only kept two – Guillermo and Barack – as well as a pup named Quincy!).
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.”
