Why I work at Everyday Democracy:

We’re not just working to solve problems today, but to integrate solutions that will prevent problems in the future and create healthier communities. It’s a big goal, but something I can really stand behind.

The people I work with and meet along the way make everything worthwhile. The team at Everyday Democracy is like a family of its own and my fellow colleagues are truly passionate about what we do. When I get a chance to visit a community and see the work in action, it reaffirms how important it is for people to have a voice in decisions that affect them.


What I love about what I do:

I love finding new ways to use technology and tools to connect people, build relationships, and make everyone’s life easier!


How I got here:

I grew up in St. Paul, Minnesota, and moved out to the East Coast to attend Smith College in Massachusetts where I studied Portuguese-Brazilian Studies and engineering. Before joining the team at Everyday Democracy, I had internships in the field of marketing and communications at Rosemount - a part of Emerson Process Management, Verité – a nonprofit that ensures fair labor conditions worldwide, and New England Public Radio.  I have been involved in web design and online communications in some way for 14 years.


What I do when I’m not helping communities create change:

Travel, dance, photography, and spending time with my adorable niece and nephews.

Dialogue to Change

Our ultimate goal is to create positive community change that includes everyone, and we believe that our tools, advice, and resources will help foster that kind of change. Whether you’re grappling with a divisive community issue, or simply want to include residents’ voices in city government, Everyday Democracy's Dialogue to Change process, using a racial equity lens, can help.
