I am chiefly responsible for developing and executing strategies to help clients foster consensus-building outcomes and meaningful change. I have a passion for government relations and public policy, as well as for the on-the-ground engagement required to include community perspectives and experiences effectively and equitably in this work. Every day I come to work I’m constantly motivated to match the tireless commitment to professional excellence that my PRR team members demonstrate. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, perfecting my grilling skills, and rooting for my beloved Baltimore Ravens. I am also a huge political news nerd and Jeopardy fan, and can often be found on my couch alternating between flipping cable news channels and scanning social media platforms for the latest news, opinions and viral curiosities.
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.”
