Her current duties include shepherding the agency’s strategic plan, overseeing the Planned Parenthood Experience (an organization-wide focus on improving the experience of those we serve) and our In This Together culture, and guiding diversity, equity and inclusion work. She also leads cross-departmental initiatives with no other home, such as supporter engagement, business transformation and GoodbyeStigma, an initiative to change the conversation about abortion.

She has a BA from Brown University in political science, a master’s in bioethics from University of Pennsylvania, and two teen children who are subjected to more conversations about sex and healthy relationships than they would like.
