I am a committee-loving meeting nerd, with experience in strategic planning, systems improvement, internal communications, event planning, and leadership strategy. To me, nothing is better than a well-run meeting with clear goals, efficient process and collaborative outcomes. Working at PRR allows me to work with stakeholders and leverage innovative approaches to make sure public infrastructure projects truly improve the lives of the people who experience them every day. In my spare time I volunteer with Community for Youth, a nonprofit organization that matches trained volunteer mentors with students from local Seattle high schools. Back at home, I love to sing and play music with friends, host dinner parties and backyard BBQs, battle the gnarly weeds my garden, and try to keep up with my super active baby girl!
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.”
