EXPERTISE is in human-centered inclusive design, project management, community-based participatory planning and placemaking, strategic planning, accessibility, and translating between wisdom, expertise, and stakeholders.
APPROACH is centered in equity and the understanding that community members are the experts in their communities. I try to foster equity through inclusivity, community building through consensus building, and ownership through participatory decision-making. I lead with process rather than product. I mainly work with nonprofits, community development groups, schools and universities, municipalities, federal agencies, and the GLAM community.
