ADEI nonprofit and arts leadership

I hold a Masters of Nonprofit Administration from the University of San Francisco (Completion: Aug 2021) with a focus on ADEI in Performing Arts Organizations. As the Artistic Director of Sacred and Profane Chamber Chorus and as a member of the faculty in USF's Performing Arts and Social Justice Department, I have dedicated my professional life to advocating for justice and equity in the arts through innovative programming, through strategic governance and board work, and through membership, audience, and community engagement.

I am a committed manager with an ability to both lead and delegate and to help others realize their professional goals and to facilitate effective teams. Together, we build organizations that work to create communities of belonging that nurture Access, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

My forthcoming ADEI Toolkit for Performing Arts Organizations will serve as a model for all organizations that are developing strategies to combat inequity in our organizations and in our communities, as well as approaches for performing artists to become genuine partners in our diverse communities.
